The Roberts Court has set legal decisions on leading issues of our time. And with the Voting Rights Act, affirmative action, and gay marriage in the upcoming term, the Court will continue to set crucial legal policy. Over the course of three charged sessions, you will gain an inside look at the trends, personalities, and identity of the Supreme Court. Topics will include free speech, national security law, the boundaries of federal power, along with an exposition of the Roberts Court and upcoming cases. The program, spanning three half-days, will feature preparatory readings, lecture, Q&A, and moderated discussion. Join us for an insider's view of where we are now, how we got here, and implications for the near future.

Moderated by Thomas Goldstein, Partner, Goldstein & Russell, P.C., Supreme Court Litigation lecturer at Stanford and Harvard Law Schools; and by Jeffrey Rosen, professor of law, The George Washington University and legal affairs editor, The New Republic. Read More
