Description

The future of the U.S. Supreme Court was a central issue of the 2016 presidential election and remains a critical question in the early days of President Trump's administration. The new shape of the Court could have profound implications for a number of important issues. A new president, a polarized political milieu and a changing court have both sides of the political aisle concerned about the balance of powers. Executive overreach, judicial activism and congressional weakness pose threats to a healthy system. Professor Michael McConnell, Director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School, explored ways in which the changing landscape bodes well or ill for a healthy balance of powers, according to the founders' vision.
