I will be participating in a panel today on the Supreme Court’s October Term 2017 with a stellar panel of experts at George Washington University. This has the makings of a historic term with issues ranging from President Trump’s travel ban to gerrymandering to religious objections to providing services for same-sex weddings. The panel will speak about possible new cases and possible outcomes in existing cases with many leading Supreme Court journalists and lawyers in attendance.
The panel will consist of:
Gregory G. Garre, JD ’91, Partner and Global Chair, Supreme Court & Appellate Practice, Latham & Watkins LLP; former Solicitor General of the United States
Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
Jeffrey Rosen, Professor, GW Law; President and CEO, National Constitution Center
Jonathan Turley, J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law, GW Law
Alan B. Morrison, Lerner Family Associate Dean for Public Interest and Public Service Law, GW Law (Moderator)
There will be a continental breakfast held at 8:30 am.
Among the cases to be discussed will be
Is the Trump administration’s executive order limiting citizens of six predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States a violation of the applicable statutes and/or the Establishment Clause?Gill v. Whitford
Are there constitutionally enforceable limits on partisan gerrymandering in legislative redistricting?
