The Supreme Court is an incredibly important institution in making sure the Constitution is being followed. The SCOTUS takes part in judicial review - the process of making sure laws are constitutional - and protecting the rights of Americans by judging on cases brought before them. Historically, the SCOTUS has been the end all be all for a court case and can only be overturned by a future SCOTUS. The SCOTUS has made important decisions both taking away rights and guaranteeing rights to the people and has served an incredibly controversial role since its formation. These guides will help you understand how the supreme court functions and the landmark decisions that have been made in the past.
