Now in its 13th year, this acclaimed annual publication brings together leading legal scholars to analyze the most important cases of the Court's most recent term and preview the year ahead. It is the first scholarly review to appear after the term's end and the only one to critique the court from a Madisonian perspective. This year's Review looks at the Supreme Court's recent decisions involving contributions to political campaigns, presidential recess appointments power, Michigan's state-constitution ban on racial preferences in higher education, and the Obamacare contraceptive mandate.
