Mixed Questions of Law and Fact: Monday, September 8, 2014

Posted by William MacDonald on September 8, 2014

As you learn to think like a lawyer, remember: Every day, every little bit helps. So come to the ASP Blog each day for a new question that tests your knowledge of — or teaches you something about — logic, grammar, vocabulary, legal history, and, of course, the law. Pick the answer you think is correct and send it in an e-mail to us at Everyone who sends us an answer to at least four questions by midnight on Friday at the end of the week will receive one ASP Achievement Club point — and those who accumulate 10 points by the end of the semester will be eligible for our prize drawing! You can send all your answers for the week in one e-mail if you like, but you must spell out your choice of answer — not simply pick a letter or number — so we know you read the question! Good luck, and have fun!

Today’s question is:

Which U.S. Supreme Court case effectively instituted the “separate but equal” policy of segregation that would be upheld by the Court for one day short of 58 years?

  1. Dred Scott v. Sandford
  2. Plessy v. Ferguson
  3. Lum v. Rice
  4. Brown v. Board of Education
