Take the #100Cases challenge, Receive An Autographed Bookplate

Tweet about each of the 100 cases in an "Introduction to Constitutional Law," Randy and I will send you a free autographed bookplate

Last week our publisher provided free access to the 11-hour video library from An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know. The reaction so far has been fantastic. Students at levels are using our videos to study constitutional law.

We would like to propose a challenge: tweet about each of the 100 cases in the library. We call it the #100Cases challenge. If you complete the challenge, please email me, and I will send you an autographed bookplate. The videos will be freely available till May 31, so there is no cost to play along.

Phil Miles, my law school classmate, took the challenge between October 2019 and February 2020. He tweeted about one case a day, with some short observations. It was a very impressive effort. Here are some of his tweets.

Good luck!

  1. I do this with Scotus audio (when not dissertating) — once I work though the current batch, I start cherry-picking from Oyez. Even if no one reads it, forcing yourself to make some comment on it brings your attention to a different level. About a year ago, I started doing it at the gym. Very useful exercise.

    Protip: if you know the law, hit the pause button and take the Justices’ questions aloud. A tip passed on by a former OSG fellow.

    Mr. D.

  2. I hereby nominate Sarcasto to take the #SCOTUS100 challenge in the VC comments section (but only in response to Prof. Blackman’s posts). Looking forward to reading those summaries.

    1. You just wanna see 100 tweets in a row of ‘this guy?’

  3. Does this include the polygamy case, Reynolds v. United States, 98 U.S. 145 (1878)?

    My name is Reynolds, and this is my rap
    I have more than one wife, so the feds give me crap
    I thought that religion was supposed to be free
    Mine says marry all your wives at once, not sequentially

  4. I should share info about this challenge https://essayrex.com here. I think people will be interested in it. It would be great!
