Synopsis
8 Supreme Court cases focusing on bias and ethics, featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg, either adjudicating as a Justice or arguing as a lawyer on each case. Each edited oral argument lasts 15-20 minutes and can be performed by a cast of 4 or more actors. At the heart of the project is role-playing, which encourages students to invest their personal passions and beliefs in a constitutional debate, and performances are intended to inspire discussion of constitutional issues and decisions.
