America’s judicial system is at a unique point in its history. Since 2010, the Supreme Court has been split into two partisan blocs: all Democratic appointees are liberal, while all Republicans are conservative.

- How has the Supreme Court, and lower courts, changed in recent decades?
- How has Donald Trump shaped America’s federal courts?
- Which cases are on the court’s docket already—and which issues might be soon?
