Science and Technology at the Supreme Court in Current Term
SISP 130
Fall 2017
Section: 01  

This seminar will introduce students to legal decisionmaking in the context of "disruptive" scientific and technical innovation by considering several cases that will be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court this term that concern science and technology. To contextualize the specific factual and legal disputes in these cases, students will learn about science, technology, and law as social institutions that shape each other and also shape their constituents and publics. The seminar will further consider the history and theory of the state monopoly on the use of force, which is what will be set into action by the enforcement of these court decisions.
