The Supreme Court Review


Since it first appeared in 1960, the Supreme Court Review has won acclaim for providing a sustained and authoritative survey of the implications of the Court's most significant decisions. SCR is an in-depth annual critique of the Supreme Court and its work, keeping up on the forefront of the origins, reforms, and interpretations of American law. SCR is written by and for legal academics, judges, political scientists, journalists, historians, economists, policy planners, and sociologists. The Supreme Court Review is edited by Dennis J. Hutchinson, David A. Strauss, and Geoffrey R. Stone.


The Supreme Court Review welcomes unsolicited manuscripts. Three hard copies of each submission should be sent to Dennis Hutchinson, 1111 East 60th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60637. Although the majority of authors work primarily in American law schools, the Review is eager to publish work by historians, political scientists and other scholars who illuminate the decisions and institutional behavior of the Court.
