Now in its 15th 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 affirmative action (Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin), executive power and immigration (United States v. Texas), religious liberty (Zubik v. Burwell), public corruption (McDonnell v. United States), property rights, class actions, judicial scrutiny and abortion, asset forfeiture, and one person, one vote.
