Oral Argument 2.0

How would a perfectly-scripted answer to a question posed by the Supreme Court sound? Oral Argument 2.0 has some suggestions. Using cases from the October 2019 Term (argued throughout 2019 and 2020), Oral Argument 2.0 highlights key questions and then provides context, commentary, and suggested answers. Featured cases are highlighted on the Home page with a general content label (for example, "employment law" or "criminal procedure"). Clicking on a case, readers will find background information (including case facts and issues), as well as some "key questions from oral argument," accompanied by a contributor's answer. For example, in Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants Inc., a case about First Amendment rights and automated debt collector calls, Justice Kagan presents a hypothetical. Eugene Volokh, Professor of Law at UCLA with a focus on First Amendment law, writes his suggested reply, relying on some key case law from his area of expertise. Not only do these questions and answers provide legal insights, but they also display good advocacy techniques that can apply in broader contexts. Many law professors, students, and practitioners contribute to the project, and it receives further support from Cornell Law's Legal Information Institute (LII), Justia, and the Oyez Project.
