Why You Should Attend

At the end of the October 2018 Term Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. This vacancy from Justice Kennedy's retirement was filled by the Senate's confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Supreme Court observers are watching closely to see if the Court will now shift sharply to the right, or, if Chief Justice John G. Roberts will become a moderate force as a "swing vote" centrist.
