From the concurring and dissenting (for and against) Supreme Court Opinions, students must cite, explain, and explore the logic for and against the case. Three arguments by the Supreme Court Justices in favor of each side must be analyzed. Students are encouraged to read the primary sources which are written by the Supreme Court Justice Opinions to learn their official position. This is an analysis paper that explores two sides of a controversy.

Cases after year 2004 may not have an academic article yet, if this is the case, news articles or policy center articles may be used.
In addition to the academic sources, students may also site congressional speeches, additional Supreme Court Justice Opinions, Presidential speeches, non-fiction books, biographies, autobiographies or laws on this topic. No blogs, opinion articles, or Wikipedia articles are permitted.
