2014 Supreme Court Case Summaries & Teaching Materials
July 29, 2014
If you couldn't join us this summer for our Supreme Court Summer Institute in Washington, DC, do not fear—we have resources from the Institute available here!
The case summaries from the 2014 term were compiled by Street Law’s Lee Arbetman, Megan Hanson, and Rachel Morris, our law student-in-residence. Access to these materials is free.
Case Study Examples: Texas v. Johnson - four examples of different case study strategies using the same case. Case studies are a great way to explore legal issues and Supreme Court cases with students, and the different activities build different skills and can scaffold toward more intensive activities like a moot court.
Freedom of Religion Activity: Applying Precedents to new Hypotheticals - explore some of the religious freedom issues at the heart of this term's biggest cases.
How do Judges Interpret the Constitution? - Lesson Plan - Street Law's activities for teaching about the judicial philosophies known as originalism and living constitution.
To access additional case summaries and SCOTUS lesson plans/teaching activities, check out our Resource Library.
