Appellate Practice Lunch Series
"The United States Supreme Court Preview: 2010-11 Term"
Please join us for our quarterly lunch, designed specifically to address the interests and needs of Appellate Law practitioners.
Justice Stras will preview the upcoming Supreme Court Term, which includes cases dealing with the state secrets doctrine, the right of groups to protest at military funerals under the First Amendment, and the constitutionality of limitations on the ability of minors to purchase violent video games. He will also review several cases that deal with procedural questions, such as class actions and mandatory arbitration of claims. Finally, Justice Stras will spend some time talking about trends in the Roberts Court, as well as the likely influence of Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan on the future direction of the Court.
