Why You Should Attend

The United States Supreme Court this term confronted a very wide range of important constitutional issues. The issues ranged from individual rights under the First Amendment free speech and religion clauses, voting rights and the Fourth Amendment, excessive force litigation, takings claims, and immigration and naturalization, to arbitration and insider trading. For most of the term the Court functioned with eight justices. However, late in the term the Senate confirmed the President's nomination of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to fill the ninth seat left vacant by the death last term of Justice Antonin Scalia.

At PLI's 19th Annual Supreme Court Review program, an extraordinary faculty representing a range of constitutional views and perspectives, including a law school dean, law professors, a circuit court judge, a Supreme Court journalist, constitutional scholars, and civil rights experts, will analyze the leading U.S. Supreme Court decisions rendered during the October 2016 Term. The decisions will be analyzed for their doctrinal, precedential and, where appropriate, litigation significance.
