The U.S. Supreme Court is both one of the most open and one of the most secretive governing institutions of the United States. The materials used by the Justices to reach their decision, including written briefs and oral arguments, are all available to the public. However, the Justices' deliberations are by and large characterized by secrecy. In his latest book, The Oath, Jeffrey Toobin, staff writer for the New Yorker and legal analyst for CNN takes us behind the scenes to examine the personalities and internal politics that have shaped major Supreme Court decisions over the past four years. Participants in this course will read and discuss the book in four sessions spread over two weeks.
