April 4: Chicago - Does Chief Justice John Roberts' fidelity to the Supreme Court as an institution trump his fidelity to the Constitution itself?

Join
The John Marshall Law School Student Chapter of the American Constitution Society, the Chicago Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society, and Fix the Court as we answer the burning question:
Does Chief Justice John Roberts’ fidelity to the Supreme Court as an institution trump his fidelity to the Constitution itself?
With the other two branches in constant chaos, has the fact that our nation’s most pressing issues are now being decided by the Supreme Court affected the jurisprudence of the Chief Umpire of the United States? If so, has Roberts ignored constitutional principles - or his own ideology - in the hopes of maintaining the court's legitimacy at a time of growing skepticism in government?
