Methods of Interpretation

How the Supreme Court Reads the Constitution

Lackland H. Bloom, Jr.

  • Examines the various methodologies the Supreme Court, and individual justices, have employed throughout history when interpreting the Constitution
  • Focuses exclusively on what the Court and individual justices have said and done about constitutional interpretation in the course of deciding constitutional cases
  • Identifies many of the best, and a few of the worst, examples of particular interpretative methodologies, as well as the best examples of explicit discussions of constitutional interpretation by the Court and individual justices
  • Provides students of the Court and Constitutional litigators an overview of the perennial best approaches to constitutional interpretation as practiced, not theorized.
