October 15: Cleveland - Making Sense of the Supreme Court #MCLE

Under Chief Justice John Roberts, the Court has developed a reputation as a “conservative” court, yet has also handed down significant “liberal” victories, including rulings on the Affordable Care Act and same-sex marriage. The Court’s recent docket has been filled with controversial, high-profile cases, and more are on the way. Moreover, a new vacancy on the Court means that the Court’s balance, and trajectory, could change dramatically in the years to come.
In this lecture, Professor Adler will look at recent decisions, upcoming cases, and the possible consequences of Justice Scalia’s death on how the Court approaches important legal issues.
