Supreme Court Preview

Professors Dan Conkle and Steve Sanders will discuss highlights from the Supreme Court’s new term, which starts October 7. Among the matters they will discuss: a trio of cases asking whether the Title VII federal anti-sex discrimination law covers sexual orientation and gender identity; a Second Amendment case that may indicate the Court’s future direction on gun rights; the future of DACA, the federal program that has allowed 700,000 "Dreamers" to avoid deportation; and whether, under the religion and equal protection clauses, a state may end a student-aid program rather than allow its funds to be used for religious schools.
