After keeping the vote open for 7 days, the results are in. The team arguing against the motion “We Should Expand The Supreme Court” has emerged as the clear winner. Congratulations to Akhil Reed Amar, a Yale Law professor, and Carter Phillips, a Supreme Court and appellate litigator, despite a valiant and compelling performance by Dahlia Lithwick, a legal commentator at Slate, and Tamara Brummer of Demand Justice, one of the leading organizations advocating reforms to the high court.
Watch the debate and decide for yourself.
A special thanks also goes out to The Newt and Jo Minow Debate Series at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law for their contributions to this exciting event.
