The U.S. Supreme Court is an institution delineated by the politics, personalities, and philosophies of its individual judges, yet the Court as a whole affects the concerns and attitudes of the times. This lesson provides an overview of the judicial process and offers tips for students to evaluate the role of the courts in political processes and U.S. policymaking.

Help facilitate your students’ understanding of:
●The conflicting nature of the U.S. Supreme Court as it attempts to be a judicial body rather than a political institution
●The personalities and philosophies of individual judges and how the Court affects and reflects the concerns and attitudes of the times
●How the composition of the current Supreme Court and its members’ philosophical differences may contribute to wider political changes taking place in the United States
