    It’s time for some bad decisions. Supreme Court podcast Strict Scrutiny is coming to Washington DC for a one-night-only live show at the Howard Theatre. 

    Strict Scrutiny is Crooked Media’s #1 chart-topping podcast about the United States Supreme Court and the legal culture that surrounds it. Hosted by three badass constitutional law professors–Leah Litman, Melissa Murray, and Kate Shaw – Strict Scrutiny provides in-depth, accessible, and irreverent analysis of the Supreme Court and its cases, culture, and personalities. Each week, Leah, Melissa, and Kate break down the latest headlines and biggest legal questions facing our country, emphasizing what it all means for our daily lives.

    Whether you’re a lawyer or law student, or you’re just here for the messy legal drama, Strict Scrutiny has you covered. New episodes out every Monday… plus bonuses whenever SCOTUS takes away another one of our rights.

    Don’t just take our word for it, here are a handful of fine folks who love Strict Scrutiny: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Cosmopolitan, Pod Save America, Getting Curious with Jonathan van Ness, and more!

    Leah Litman is a professor of law at the University of Michigan Law School. She clerked for Judge Sutton on the Sixth Circuit and Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Leah researches and writes about constitutional law and federal courts. She also maintains an active pro bono practice. In addition to federal courts and all things SCOTUS, Leah’s other favorite conversation topics are her mini goldendoodle puppy, Stevie Nicks, and reality television, particularly RuPaul’s Drag Race. In her quiet moments, Leah reminds herself of Bianca Del Rio (or Sasha Velour, during her finale lip syncs)

    Melissa Murray is the Frederick I. and Grace Stokes Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, where she teaches constitutional law, family law, and reproductive rights and justice and writes about the legal regulation of intimate life. Melissa clerked for Judge Stefan Underhill on the District of Connecticut and for Justice Sotomayor when she served on the Second Circuit. When she’s not reading the SCOTUS tea leaves, she’s practicing the violin, reading People magazine, and keeping up with Meghan and Harry. Seriously.

    Kate Shaw is a Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. She teaches constitutional law, administrative law, and a seminar on the Supreme Court, and writes about executive power, the law of democracy, and reproductive rights and justice. Before becoming a law professor she worked in the Obama White House Counsel’s Office, and before that was a clerk to Justice Stevens and Judge Posner. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, three kids, and rescue dog Shadow.
