The Current Supreme Court Term 2021 Register View Cart

Once again, PVSC is honored to have Sol Goldman teach his informative course, and for the second time on Zoom.

Donald Trump may be gone, but his impact on the Supreme Court (as well as the other parts of the federal judiciary) will last and last. How will the Supreme Court deal with questions such as these:

  • What’s the correct test for the meaning of “free exercise” of religion? (Did Scalia get it wrong back 30 years ago?)

  • Does the detention have to actually be successful to be a “seizure” part of the 4th Amendment?

And how about these for return visits:

  • Is the whole ACA unconstitutional?

  • Does last term’s decision on the requirement for unanimity in jury verdicts apply retroactively?

  • What exactly did the Court mean in 2012 when it decided that juveniles couldn’t be automatically sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole? 

There are a number of cases about the administrative state: DOD, FHFA, PTO. Did I mention the whole NCAA anti-trust thing? Tune in (don’t drop out).
