Politics at Amherst: The American Judiciary

Host Aaron Holton ’25 is joined by Managing News Editor Leo Kamin ’25 to discuss the role of bias in the American judicial system and the ways in which the Supreme Court is an inherently political institution.

How can we reduce racial bias in the American judicial system? Is the Supreme Court a political body? If so, how can we make the Supreme Court more democratic? Aaron Holton and Leo Kamin discuss these questions and more in the second episode of Politics at Amherst’s three-part series on the criminal justice system.
