Answer the essay question below in detail. References to readings, including author, title and page numbers, are required (parenthetical references are acceptable). Use of the relevant web links listed on the syllabus to cases is similarly expected.
Make sure that your essay contains a clear and comprehensive thesis, a solid body of analysis, argument and evidence, as well as a conclusion that sums up your overall findings.
Over the course of the 20th and 21st century, the role of the Supreme Court became intertwined with American wartime policies in ways few could have imagined when the Constitutional Convention created the judiciary branch in the 18th century. From the American entry into the Great War in April of 1917 to the contemporary War on Terrorism, the legal system in a uniquely American way became a critical institution for the interpretation ofthe rights of citizens and the rights of the government in times of national emergencies.
In your paper, explain this shift in the Court’s role through the lens of three different cases that we have addressed from the period between 1917 and 2008. Your paper should lay out an overall argument that explains the role of the Court in these cases and you should comprehensively integrate how the Court handled and ruled in these cases. As you do, you must consider the constitutional issues at stake, the debates and arguments made before the Court's, therulings, the nationalcontext, and the historical and legal precedent of these cases. Your essay must include assigned sources
as well as sources from the specific cases including arguments and majority and minority opinions.
Note: If your research paper dealt with a case of this nature, you may notuse that case as one of the three examples. (I used the Dred Scott Case for my research paper so please use other cases as examples)
