The Supreme Court: A Preview of the New Term (Afternoon Panel Only)

Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Code: 1H0451A
U.S. Supreme Court in autumn

Each fall, nine Supreme Court justices begin hearing and deliberating the country’s most important—and often most controversial—legal cases.

Get in on the conversation in this afternoon panel where top experts on the Supreme Court preview some of the cases the court will take up.

1:30–3:30 p.m. Perspectives on the Court

At the Ripley Center, legal experts debate critical issues raised in some of the cases the court will hear. The panel includes Noel Francisco, who represents the United States before the Supreme Court; Joan Biskupic, CNN legal analyst; Elaine J. Goldenberg, partner at Munger, Tolles & Olson; and Roman Martinez, partner and member of the firm’s Supreme Court and Appellate Practice at Latham & Watkins. Kannon Shanmugam, chair of the Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group and managing partner at Paul Weiss, serves as moderator.

This program does not include a trip to the Supreme Court and is part of an all-day program.
