About The Series
LANDMARK CASES: Historic Supreme Court Decisions

The human stories behind Supreme Court cases have shaped the meaning of the Constitution today. We’ve picked twelve of the most significant and frequently cited cases in the Supreme Court’s history and are bringing to life the personalities, people, and constitutional dramas that have made them so central to the way we live now.

C-SPAN's 12-part history series, produced in cooperation with the National Constitution Center, explores the issues, people and places involved in some of the most significant Supreme Court Cases in our nation's history. Landmark Cases introduces viewers to the stories of the plaintiffs who sparked these cases and to justices and lawyers who were key to the Supreme Court’s review. The series visits historic sites and other locations that bring these cases to life; studio guests interacting with C-SPAN viewers offer historic context and modern relevance to the programs.
