The Supreme Court’s 2014 Term will soon be over, but the need for serious analysis has just begun. Did the High Court get the big cases right? What will the Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell mean for President Obama’s signature healthcare law? After Michigan v. EPA, how much discretion does an agency have in considering the costs of their regulations? What will happen in the aftermath of Obergefell v. Hodges, the same-sex marriage case? Will the Court’s decision about disparate impact in Texas Dep’t of Housing v. Inclusive Communities Project advance a colorblind Constitution? What’s the status of the Takings Clause after Horne v. USDA? What are the implications for foreign affairs conflicts between the Executive Branch and Congress after Zivotofsky v. Kerry? How will the decisions in Walker v. Sons of Confederate Veterans and Elonis v. United States impact free speech?

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.
