Questions to Consider:
1) Judicial activism vs. judicial restraint. Do you believe the Supreme Court should be more activist or demonstrate restraint? Why? Use examples from current events or history to support your points.
2) There may be additional Supreme Court retirements upcoming, giving President Trump possibly the power to continue shaping the Court for decades to come. See this article (Links to an external site.). How do you think these future replacements will impact the court and more broadly, U.S. society?
3) The Supreme Court may take up several controversial cases/issues this year. See this article (Links to an external site.). Are there any issues here that are of concern to you, and why? Also, there is talk of the Supreme Court – as it becomes more conservative may overturn Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortions in the US in 1973. Your thoughts? This article (Links to an external site.) may help.
