In partnership with:

These classes will provide a concise wrap of the consequential 2021-22 Supreme Court term, and consider its significance for the future of the Court and the constitutional enterprise. Do the Court’s decisions in the realm of abortion, guns and religion mark the end of Chief Justice Roberts’ consensus-seeking experiment? If so, whose Court is it, and what can we expect from it in the future? And what does it all mean for the Court’s standing in the eyes of a seemingly hopelessly divided and polarized public?


David Ryden, Ph.D. professor at Hope College, has a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School and a Ph.D. from the Catholic University of America. His areas of specialization are religion and politics, American Constitutionalism, and parties and elections. He is a favorite at OLLI.
