ON DEMAND: New U.S. Supreme Court Decisions & What They Mean

Class recorded April 29, 2022

The U.S. Supreme Court will soon decide – or has recently decided – several controversial cases, exercising its “province and duty…to say what the law is,” in the words of its famous 1803 decision in Marbury v. Madison. These cases come as the ideological makeup of the Court has changed, with justices generally viewed as conservative-leaning now holding a 6-3 advantage. In this class, hear from a prominent Supreme Court commentator and litigator about how the Court’s new and upcoming decisions on issues like abortion, gun ownership, religion in publicly funded schools, and voting rights, among others, could affect our constitutional and other important rights.

Class covers:

  • An overview of major upcoming, and recently decided, U.S. Supreme Court cases
  • The issues in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the major abortion rights case, and how the Court may decide
  • New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, a case that could change Second Amendment gun ownership rights
  • Why the recent decision Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee, applying the Voting Rights Act, is so important
  • Other cases affecting our constitutional and other important rights
