In response to the AP U.S. Government & Politics course and exam redesign in 2018, Street Law has prepared summaries of the 15 identified Supreme Court cases. This resource combines all 15 case summaries into a convenient single document.
- McCulloch v. Maryland (1819)
- Schenck v. United States (1919)
- Brown v. Board of Education (1954)
- Baker v. Carr (1961)
- Engel v. Vitale (1962)

- Shaw v. Reno (1993)
- United States v. Lopez (1995)
- Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010)

Because some of these cases include issues related to race and social identity, Street Law recommends: Teaching Street Law Content Involving Race and Social Identity. This resource can help teachers bring content about race and social identity into their classrooms. It offers some advice and questions to help guide decisions about teaching this content while affirming students’ identities.
