Rely on at least one academic article that discusses the case to develop your own analysis Again, you are encouraged to rely on a variety of sources, including Oyez.com, YouTube, podcasts, Google News, etc. - Discuss the reason the Supreme Court heard this case. Said another way, the Court decides which cases it hears, and often does not hear a case until society has developed a general understanding. This is one way the Court tries to avoid appearing overly political. - Does the Court seek to clarify an existing legal principle or rule or how the rule should be applied? Or does the Court depart greatly from prior precedent or criminal justice norms? Explain whether the Court made a small legal step here or a big one. - Does the case reflect a willingness of the Court to evolve with changes in society? For example, for the Fourth Amendment, the original framers of the Constitution focused on physical objects in a physical space, especially the home. Now, the Supreme Court must apply the Fourth Amendment in a variety of contexts in and outside of the home, using a variety of technologies that did not exist two hundred years ago. - How do the police or courts apply the legal principles of your case? Most academic articles will offer some statistics, along with narrative, that show how the Court's decision has impacted the "real world." This is especially true for cases that deal with police search and seizure, as well as the questioning of suspects. - Was the Court’s decision just? Said another way, do you agree with the Court’s decision? How would you modify the rule to conform to your sense of fairness as it relates to the criminal justice system and the rights of the accused? Your focus here can be on how the police or courts uphold our fundamental rights in the process of fighting crime
