The Supreme Court of the United States is the branch of government with the most mystery, and curiosity. The proceedings are not televised, and yet many are fascinated by the goings on at the High Court, despite having little understanding of the cases decided there, and what they mean for most people.
The Forum on Law, Culture & Society at NYU School of Law, and its partner, 92Y, continues its annual program, Law of the Land: the Supreme Court’s Year in Review. We will take you inside the Court’s major rulings and discuss their bearing on past and future cases. And this year offers a new Supreme Justice.
Join us with longtime legal affairs analyst Dan Abrams of MSNBC, Supreme Court biographer and CNN legal analyst Joan Biskupic, and Dean Trevor Morrison and Professor Kenji Yoshino of NYU School of Law, along with our moderator Thane Rosenbaum for another fascinating look at the Supreme Court’s just concluded term.
CLE accreditation for this event is pending.
