Course Description

With the death of Justice Scalia and the resulting empty seat on the bench, 2016 shaped up to be one of the more interesting Supreme Court terms in recent history. Join Robert Fitzpatrick as he talks about the current makeup of the Supreme Court, discusses trends in the decisions being handed down, makes predictions on where the court is headed, and, ultimately, discusses many of the key decisions - and 4-4 splits - that came out of the 2015-2016 term. The cases covered by Mr. Fitzpatrick have severe implications on everything from everything from employment law, criminal law, intellectual property, abortion, affirmative action, and more.
