About the Event
The Supreme Court decides approximately 80 cases each year. Professor Collins will discuss the Court's most consequential decisions from the October 2021 Term, which include, among others, rulings involving freedom of religion, affirmative action, the scope of congressional regulatory power, the scope of the executive branch rulemaking power, pre-viability abortion and judge's duty to recuse in the Court's recent appointees in shaping a more conservative majority and what that bodes for the future of the Court as an institution.
