Little will provide an overview of the judicial philosophies of “originalism” and “textualism,” and what they mean for issues in the U.S. Supreme Court today.He’ll also discuss the viability of the Supreme Court as an independent branch of the federal government.Some critics argue, and Professor Little will discuss, whether recent presidential appointments to the Court and the perception the Supreme Court is overly partisan has eroded the Court’s position as the independent cornerstone of our democracy based on the rule of law.This event is organized by our partner Stanford Women’s Club of San Francisco who welcomes NEXT Village members and friends to join them on what promises to be an interesting Zoom event to help us all understand more about what has been happening in the Supreme Court.
