S2, E2: Justices Start Term With Guns Blazing
The Supreme Court wasted little time making waves in its first week of the 2020 term, from Justice Clarence Thomas’ attack on the “Obergefell” precedent to a multibillion copyright battle between Google and Oracle.

We break down the court’s busy first week on this week’s episode.
S2, E1: The Impact of Amy Coney Barrett
The Supreme Court's 2020 term kicks off in less than a week. On this week’s episode of The Term, we discuss what Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation would mean for some of the biggest cases on the docket, from the fate of the Affordable Care Act to the First Amendment.
The Life And Legacy Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is among the few on the Supreme Court to have etched her name into legal history long before donning a robe. In a special episode this week, Law360's The Term dives into her legacy as a pioneering women's rights advocate with two guests who worked by her side.
We’re Back With Season 2
It’s been a long and difficult summer full of cancelled vacations, sweaty face masks, and a lack of new episodes from your favorite Law360 Supreme Court podcast, The Term.

So if you enjoyed our show last year, or if you’re looking for a quick, digestible news podcast to get you caught up on the biggest Supreme Court developments, tune in every Thursday.
S1, E39: Term Finale - The Myth Of The Moderate Court
In our final episode of the season, The Term podcast team looks back on the Supreme Court's historic 2019 term with a pair of special guests. First we talk to Law360 research and data editor Jackie Bell about some surprising numbers that came out of the court this year. Then, we welcome on Melissa Murray, a constitutional law professor at NYU School of Law and co-host of the Supreme Court podcast Strict Scrutiny, for wide-ranging conversation covering everything from the pandemic to the impeachment trial, to debunking the narrative that Chief Justice John Roberts is leading the court in a “moderate” direction.
We’re taking a short hiatus while the justices are on recess, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated with any major news from the court, and we’ll be back for season two when the next high court term gets started this fall.
