Scholars & Scribes Review the Rulings: The Supreme Court's 2006-2007 Term

Recorded on July 11, 2007

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The Supreme Court's 2006 Term is over - but the serious analysis has just begun. How have John Roberts and Samuel Alito changed the Court?

And then there are the rulings-and dissents-themselves. How will the recent decisions on racial preferences affect student placement practices in the nation's public school districts? Could we really be headed for classroom "re-segregation"? Did Justice Kennedy's concurring opinion provide some wiggle room for the continued used of racial preferences?

Was the Court just following precedent when it upheld the federal partial birth abortion ban, or does it allow Congress and the States greater latitude to regulate abortions? Does the Wisconsin Right to Life decision mark the beginning of the end for the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law? And then there are the decisions concerning religious liberty, global warming, and the death penalty.

There's lots to talk about. Please join us at The Heritage Foundation as two distinguished panels of scholars and Supreme Court scribes analyze the latest term of the Supreme Court, its Justices and its decisions.
