In the mind of a SCOTUS justice – Ketanji Brown Jackson

The last homework before the final exam is to learn more about a specific person who is currently serving on the U.S. Supreme Court. Read the instructions below. Use Oyez or another source to find the names of all the current SCOTUS justices.

The goal of this project is to discover the guiding principles underlying the Justice’s approach to constitutional interpretation. Your written report and analysis should accomplish the following in about 500 words:

  • Describe the training and experience of the Justice prior to his/her SCOTUS appointment.
  • Provide a brief summary of their SCOTUS career to date.
  • Analyze a case they heard on a civil liberty issue.
  • Give their proximate placement on an ideological continuum regarding how they might decide a potential case on a civil liberty issue
  • Ketanji Brown Jackson is my justice choice ( for a $10 tip please complete the bonus justice and complete the same tasks)
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the bonus justice
