Published every September, the Cato Supreme Court Review brings together leading legal scholars to analyze key cases from the Court's most recent term, plus cases coming up. Now in its eighth edition, the Review is the first scholarly journal to appear after the term's end and the only one to critique the Court from a Madisonian perspective, grounded in the nation's first principles, liberty and limited government.
