FantasySCOTUS is the Internet’s Premier Supreme Court Fantasy League. In its fifth season, over 20,000 attorneys, law students, and other avid Supreme Court followers made predictions about all cases that the Supreme Court decided.
FantasySCOTUS is brought to you by the Harlan Institute. The Harlan Institute’s mission is to bring a stylized law school experience into the high school classroom to ensure that our next generation of leaders has a proper understanding of our most fundamental laws. By utilizing the expertise of leading legal scholars and the interactivity of online games, Harlan will introduce students to our Constitution, the cases of the United States Supreme Court, and our system of justice. Harlan’s long term strategic goal is to develop condensed law school courses that can be taught at no cost in high schools across the country using engaging online programs.
The Harlan Institute has developed FantasySCOTUS for High School students, a Supreme Court Fantasy League for High School students.
FantasySCOTUS has been featured in the New York Times, and on Hearst Broadcasting Television, CNN.com, the WSJ Law Blog, the National Law Journal’s Supreme Court Insider, Reason Magazine, the Volokh Conspiracy, Above The Law, SCOTUSBlog, Balkinzation, Underneath Their Robes, the New York Times Freakonomics Blog, the Legal Blog Watch, the Faculty Lounge, Yahoo News, the ABA Journal, the ABA Journal Magazine, and many other sites. Lawrence Hurley asked Justice Stephen G. Breyer about the public interest in the Supreme Court and FantasySCOTUS in an interview. Justice Breyer responded that “I’m glad the public is interested. The more the public knows about the court, the better.” FantasySCOTUS, and its 10,000+ member league, has been described as the “hottest new fantasy-league game,” “a very, very clever idea!,” ”new gold standard in Supreme Court geekery,” and the “toast of the legal world.”
