Obamacare, Immigration, and Affirmative Action: A Look at the Supreme Court’s ‘Term of the Century’

Cato Sponsor e‐​Briefing
Monday, November 14, 2011
Noon – 1 p.m. (EST)

Featuring a presentation and live discussion with Ilya Shapiro, senior fellow in constitutional studies at the Cato Institute and editor‐​in‐​chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review; moderated by Caleb O. Brown, Director of Multimedia.

The Supreme Court’s current term presents an especially interesting mix of cases. It will tackle criminal law questions of warrantless GPS tracking, jailhouse strip searches, and ineffective counsel relating to plea bargains, and intellectual property. And all that is before we even get to the “elephant in the room,” the lawsuits against Obamacare. Indeed, the room contains a veritable herd of elephants, with cases involving affirmative action, gay marriage, and immigration all on the horizon. Join Ilya Shapiro as he discusses what we can expect from what very well might be the “term of the century.”
