Pretend that you are a lawyer and you represent a group who wants a certain side to win in a Supreme Court case. Write a 200 word Amicus (latin for Friend of the Court) Brief, arguing why the Court should consider the interests of your client.

Be sure to include citations to the cases, and make a strong policy argument why your side should win.
