5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET

The Supreme Court’s 2020-2021 term promises to be an important season for arguments, decisions, and Court composition. In addition to the appointment of a new justice, the Court’s docket features challenges to the constitutionality of the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act, two cases on federal preemption (one concerning a state law that essentially excludes political independents from the state’s judiciary), several cases on immigrant rights, and the continuation of a decades-long copyright battle between tech giants Google and Oracle.  

Join St. Francis School of Law Dean Greg Brandes for a detailed look at some of the most important cases to be decided during the upcoming Supreme Court term and the effect of the change in Court composition, owing to the passing of Justice Ginsburg.
