Former President Donald Trump added three conservative Justices to the Supreme Court who might serve until 2050 (or beyond). In the introductory lecture, I will explore their likely impact on the law. We will then discuss leading cases decided last term. These concern: voting restrictions; Obamacare; Fourth Amendment Sanctity of the home; LGBTQ adoptions and freedom of religion; tribal law; compensation for collegiate athletes; student free speech; guard immunity for prisoner abuse; union campaigns on private property; and money damages for Muslims who were wrongly put on the no-fly list after 9-11.
There are required readings, about 10-15 pages of condensed judicial opinions each week, and vigorous and respectful discussion is encouraged. All the cases are new and prior participants are most welcome.
