The Supreme Court’s 2015 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 United States v. Texas mean for President Obama’s deferred action immigration programs? Will the Obama Administration and the Little Sisters of the Poor reach an agreement following the Court’s unusually brief ruling in Zubik v. Burwell? How will the decision in former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s case affect future corruption prosecutions? Will the Court’s decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt empower more states to require abortion clinics to meet basic safety and health standards? What’s next for Abigail Fisher in her ongoing race discrimination suit against the University of Texas? What trends can be discerned from the rulings this term, and how has the sudden passing of Justice Antonin Scalia affected the balance in power?

Join us as our distinguished panels of practitioners, scholars, and correspondents debate these and other rulings from this past term.
