The Changing Role of the US Supreme Court: A Conversation with Professor Leon Friedman
More than any time since 1937, there is serious consideration today about fundamentally changing the structure and role of the Supreme Court of the United States. After taking office, President Biden appointed a commission to study and propose possible reforms to the Supreme Court that might include adding new justices, imposing term limits, changing its discretionary jurisdiction, or other changes. At the same time, today’s Court is facing momentous decisions on questions such as abortion or the Second Amendment. The role of the Supreme Court is more important and contested than ever.
