The November issue is the special annual review of the U.S. Supreme Court's previous Term (2010). Each year, the issue is introduced by noteworthy and extensive contributions from recognized scholars, often cited, as well as featuring student commentary on Leading Cases of the 2010 Term. Complete statistical graphs and tables of the Court's actions and results during the Term are also included.
The Review generally publishes articles by professors, judges, and practitioners and solicits reviews of important recent books from recognized experts. Most student writing takes the form of Notes, Recent Cases, Recent Legislation, and Book Notes. This much-cited issue of the Review is November 2011, the first issue of academic year 2011-2012 (Volume 125).
In this issue, the Foreword is authored by Dan Kahan, and examines the idea of "neutral" judicial review and the Supreme Court's methodology of constitutional decisionmaking and establishment of precedent, as well as the problem of motivated cognition, particularly in light of notable cases from the 2010 Term. An article by Judith Resnik offers an extensive Comment on three recent notable cases: Wal-Mart v. Dukes, AT&T v. Concepcion, and Turner v. Rogers. In addition, the first issue of each new volume provides an extensive summary of the important cases of the previous Supreme Court docket, on a wide range of legal, political and constitutional subjects.
