With a new Supreme Court Justice on the bench and challenges to executive actions, this has been an eventful SCOTUS term with significant ramifications.
Join us for an America's Town Hall program with distinguished legal scholars Erwin Chemerinsky, Paul Clement, Frederick M. Lawrence, and Dahlia Lithwick, as they discuss the most important cases of the term, including adding the citizenship question to the 2020 census, partisan gerrymandering, and religious symbols in the public square. They will also discuss challenges to the President's executive actions in the lower courts and what to expect at the Supreme Court next year.
