Great Chief Justices: Who They Are/Why They Were Important

Tuesdays, March 5, 12, 19 and 26
10:30 a.m. to noon, $48/$60

Course Description: There have been a total of 17 Chief Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Most were relatively unimportant, either because their service was short or because their cases have not had lasting legal significance. There are a few exceptions: John Marshall, William Howard Taft, Charles Evans Hughes and Earl Warren. This 4-week course will tell us about the men themselves, and why their impact on the law, and our society, continues until today.

Facilitator: Jim O’Hara is a retired professor at Loyola University of Maryland. He has previously taught SPICE courses entitled “The Supreme Court,” “First Ladies of the United States of America” and “New Perspectives on the Jewish Justices.” Jim is a former Catholic priest, an author and a long-time friend of Har Sinai Congregation.
