Why you should attend
A distinguished faculty of leading constitutional scholars, civil rights experts, a law school dean and a Supreme Court journalist will analyze, discuss, and debate the leading Supreme Court decisions of the October 2011 Term. The faculty represent a variety of constitutional views and perspectives. The decisions will be analyzed for their precedential, doctrinal and, where appropriate, societal and litigation significance.
What you will learn
The program will feature an in-depth analysis of the Court's decisions concerning the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act health care legislation. In addition, the Court's 2011 plenary docket features numerous other highly significant cases involving clashes between individual and government interests and state and federal government power. The cases involve a wide range of important issues concerning freedom of speech and religion, Fourth Amendment searches, the Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, civil rights litigation, and the Supremacy Clause.
Some of the specific issues include:
• Congress's power under Commerce Clause to require health insurance (Florida v. U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)
• Police GPS tracking under the Fourth Amendment (United States v. Jones)
• Validity of Arizona law requiring police checks of immigration status of arrestees (Arizona v. United States)
• Constitutionality under First Amendment of FCC indecency regulations (FCC v. Fox Television Stations)
• Constitutionality of life sentences for juveniles convicted of murder (Miller v. Alabama; Jackson v. Hobbs)
Who should attend
Anyone concerned with the development of constitutional law and the U. S. Supreme Court will find this program highly informative and intellectually stimulating.
