The 2006 Term for Dummies

Today is the first Monday in October, the traditional beginning of the Supreme Court's new term. Not much happened at the Court today, though. However, there are arguments scheduled for tomorrow. If you are looking for a quick and dirty prep for the new term, check out this link from Prof. Althouse. Time has a short, four point preview of the things to watch. The article says to watch for Roberts' push for unanimity, Kennedy as the swing vote, the abortion issue, and the affirmative action issue. While this is not an in depth analysis of the new term, it should give you enough fodder and talking points to make you sound smart around other people (especially if they don't know anything about the Court).
