I will have the pleasure of participating in the annual Supreme Court review today previewing the upcoming October term. The other panelists will be former Solicitor General Gregory Garre, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund President and Director-Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill. Associate Dean (and Supreme Court litigator) Alan Morrison will moderate the panel.
“Previewing the Supreme Court’s October Term 2018” will be held in the Jacob Burns Moot Court Room, 2000 H St NW, Washington, D.C. at 9:00.m.
In addition to discussing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, we will discuss pending cases involving the death penalty, arbitration, class action and constitutional law, and other areas.
This is always an interesting exchange but the current nomination magnifies the significance of both the makeup of the docket and, of course, the Court itself.
