Supreme Court’s New Session
The Supreme Court’s new term started the first Monday in October. The court docket includes hot-button cases on political campaign contributions, abortion rights, free speech, affirmative action, public prayer and presidential power. We hear from three former Supreme Court clerks about the issues before the court and how cases are chosen. Joining us are Michael Scodro, Illinois Solicitor General and University of Chicago Law School Lecturer, Carolyn Shapiro, Associate Professor at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law and Director of the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States (ISCOTUS), and David Franklin, Associate Professor at DePaul University College of Law.
