    Street Law SCOTUS in the Classroom Case summaries

    The Street Law Scotus case summaries are just fantastic - they're in depth enough to really interest and engage high achieving students, but clear enough with straightforward language to use with most classes. Love them - thank you for creating these on so many cases, and on current ones which is awesome for current events.
