Constitutional Scholar Visits Gann's Supreme Court Class
Constitutional scholar and law professor at Fordham Law School Jed Shugerman visited Gann Academy's Supreme Court class this week to discuss Marbury v Madison, the 1803 Supreme Court case that established the principle of judicial review in the United States.
"The Supreme Court class at Gann is unique in that we don't just read and analyze influential court cases, but we debate and re-try them," said Yoni Kadden, teacher and Gann History Department Chair. "This course is taught in the same style as one you'd find in law school. And, having such an influential constitutional lawyer like Jed Shugerman join the class adds an extra level to the debates."
Shugerman is the author of The People's Courts
, published by Harvard University Press, and the recent amicus brief in Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) v. Trump
, arguing that President Donald Trump is in violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause. Shugerman is also a recurring contributor on the PBS Newshour, MSNBC, CBS News, Bloomberg, and many other news programs.
