The Supreme Court’s 2013 Term will soon be over, but the need for serious analysis has just begun. Did the High Court get the big cases right? Will Congress respond to the Court’s decision in McCutcheon v. FEC, the latest challenge to campaign finance restrictions? What’s the status of the Establishment Clause after Town of Greece v. Galloway? Will more states ban racial preferences in college admissions following Schuette v. BAMN? What is the future of the Recess Appointments Clause after NLRB v. Noel Canning? What are the political implications of McCullen v. Coakley, the abortion speech buffer zone case, and Harris v. Quinn, the challenge to Illinois’ unionization of Medicaid personal care providers? What will the ruling in the Hobby Lobby case mean for President Obama’s signature health care law?
Please join us as our distinguished panels of practitioners, scholars, and correspondents debate these and other rulings from this past term and discuss what is likely to unfold next term.
