Present a report on a Supreme Court decision that has been important in shaping the interpretation of the Constitution. The report should be three- to five-pages in length (excluding cover page, reference page, etc.). The choice of the court decision is up to you. A list of suitable cases can be found in the Appendix of this guide. You may organize your report as you see fit, however, the report should, at a minimum cover the following points: the background of the case (the parties and the points at issue), the constitutional questions raised by the case, a clear summary of the court’s decision, and an evaluation of the decision’s constitutional significance (the relationship of this decision to others is relevant here). The report should be prepared using APA style. All sources must be cited.
You are welcome to use whatever sources you feel to be appropriate. Some websites that may help with your paper include:
• The texts of Supreme Court decisions since 1893 may be found at www.Findlaw.com/casecode/supreme.html.
