Take a closer look at some of the operational norms of the Supreme Court, such as the Rule of Four or the prohibition on cameras in the courtroom. What is your opinion about them as long-standing traditions, and which (if any), do you believe should be changed?

Please briefly answer these two questions. Thank you.

1. Take a closer look at some of the operational norms of the Supreme Court, such as the Rule of Four or the prohibition on cameras in the courtroom. What is your opinion about them as long-standing traditions, and which (if any), do you believe should be changed?

2. Alexander Hamilton argued that the judiciary was the least dangerous branch of government. Was he right? How much power do today’s courts have? What would Hamilton think of the judicial system today?
