Supreme Court Forum (SCF)


The Supreme Court Forum (SCF) (previously known as the Supreme Court Reading Group) hosts small, seminar-style events throughout the year that bring together students and a distinguished guest to talk about a recent or upcoming Supreme Court case. All attendees read excerpts of key Supreme Court opinions, briefs, articles, or transcripts prior to the seminar to facilitate an informed discussion. It’s a great opportunity to kick back, have a drink, and talk SCOTUS with amazing NYU professors, judges, and practitioners.

All events are open to currently enrolled JD/LLM students. Two weeks before an event, we send out a link to an attendee lottery system, and selected attendees will be notified ahead of the event. If you have any questions or would like to get involved, please feel free to contact us at or
