Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court plays a critical role in the life of every person in America.

The Center for American Progress recognizes the need for structural court reforms such as term limits, a binding code of ethics, and increased transparency that could help depoliticize the nation’s highest court and make it more reflective of the nation.
