How Covid-19 Changed Practice at the Supreme Court  (30 MINUTES)
From relaxing paper filing rules to publicly broadcasting live arguments for the first time, this term at the Supreme Court has been far from business as usual. Prof. David Schultz discusses the changes at Court this term and what these changes may mean for the future.
– Professor David A. Schultz; Hamline University


Closely Watched Cases This Term – Discrimination, Immigration and Religion  (90 MINUTES)
Our panel of experts discuss decisions in three key areas:

  • The Court’s landmark ruling that TitleVII’s prohibition of discrimination because of sex includes sexual orientation and gender identity;
  • The 5-4 decision invalidating President Trump’s reversal of former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Executive Order; and
  • Religion cases, including Espinoza v. Montana addressing school vouchers, Little Sisters of the Poor addressing exemptions from providing contraception under health plans, Trump v. Pennsylvania addressing related issues, and St. James School and Our Lady of Guadalupe School regarding the application of discrimination laws to employees with religious roles in religious institutions.

– Tina Burnside; Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
– Professor Teresa Stanton Collett; University of St. Thomas School of Law

This session addresses several high-profile cases, including:

  • Trump cases addressing the House of Rep’s authority to subpoena creditors and businesses of the President;
  • Presidential-elector cases out of Washington State addressing whether a state can force electors to vote consistently with the state’s popular vote;
  • The decision in Seila Law addressing whether the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional; and
