The Supreme Court’s Year In Review, 2016

July 6, 2017

The Supreme Court of the United States is the branch of government with the most mystery and curiosity. The proceedings are not televised, and yet many are fascinated by the goings on at the high court, despite having little understanding of the cases decided there, and what they mean for most people.

FOLCS sat down with Adam Liptak of The New York Times, Dahlia Lithwick of Slate, NPR’s award-winning legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg, Professor Kenji Yoshino, and Dean Trevor Morrison of NYU School of Law for this fascinating program.

“71 times in the Simpson case, the prosecution or the defense said ‘this trial is a search for truth’. Let me be very clear. Criminal trials are not a search for truth."
