I think it depends on your professor. Mine specifically told us we need to know the older ones, presumably because he wants us to argue using both the old precedents and the new ones. But your professor could be completely different.
That makes sense. I think my professor said to treat Roberts's discussion on the CC as the law for purposes of the exam, but I could be wrong. I'm guessing that means the only really relevant cases are NFIB, Lopez, Morrison, and Raich?
