    A Look at the Supreme Court’s New Term

    How will the successor to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg impact the U.S. Supreme Court in both the short- and long-term? What are some of the big cases the Court is set to hear this Term, whether with eight Justices or nine? What role might it play in disputes relating to the upcoming elections? What are the longer-term implications for the next Justice and the upcoming election on the Court, the current Justices, and their docket? And, far less importantly, what’s it like to argue a Supreme Court case via telephone?

    Join Supreme Court veteran David Frederick ’89 and Professor Steve Vladeck for a free-flowing conversation about the Court’s new Term—and its deeply contentious future.

    1.25 hrs CLE. No prerequisites or advance preparation are required.
