One of the earliest and most consequential decisions of the Trump presidency will be the choice of nominee to fill Antonin Scalia's seat on the Supreme Court. What can we expect from that nominee on issues likely to come before the Court in the near future? How will he or she affect the dynamics and balance of power on the Court? And what will his or her appointment mean for the rights of the American citizen, the nature of American democracy, and the ability of the Trump administration to place its stamp upon American life? Join Professor Justin Crowe for a primer on what Trump's Supreme Court might look like and where it might take us.  

Justin Crowe '03, Associate Professor of Political Science and Chair of the Program in Leadership Studies, joined the Williams College faculty in 2009 after receiving his PhD from Princeton University and teaching for two years at Pomona College. He teaches courses on constitutional law and politics, American political thought and development, and various other aspects of democracy in contemporary America. His research interests include the role of the Constitution and the Supreme Court in American political development. His book, Building the Judiciary: Law, Courts, and the Politics of Institutional Development (Princeton University Press, 2012), seeks to explain how and why the federal judiciary — especially, but not exclusively, the Supreme Court — was transformed from a weak and inconsequential body at the Founding to a governing institution of American politics today. He is currently at work on projects about vice regulation in the Progressive era Supreme Court and constitutional amendments as agents of political change.
