Summary: On Saturday 27 August 2016, hosted its first Saturday Webinar of the 2016-17 school year, on Marbury v. Madison. This year's theme of Landmark Supreme Court cases got off to a great start with a thoughtful discussion of the politics and constitutional aspects of the at the time it was decided, and the legal and constitutional legacy in the years since. Scholars also discussed the case as related to the concepts of both judicial review and judicial supremacy, and the extent to which the Constitution was seen as a legal, rather than political document.
