Smart conversation from the National Constitution Center

Podcast: The Supreme Court’s next term

September 21, 2017 by NCC Staff


This week we look at a potentially blockbuster Supreme Court term starting in early October and a few cases that could be added to the Court’s docket.

The Court is already scheduled to hear cases about partisan gerrymandering and President Trump’s immigration orders, and important cases related to free speech and privacy.

Joining us to discuss these arguments and more are two of America’s leading scholars of law.

Michael Dorf is the Robert S. Stevens Professor of Law at the Cornell University Law School.

Ilya Shapiro is a senior fellow in constitutional studies at the Cato Institute and editor-in-chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review.


Today’s show was engineered by Jason Gregory and produced by Ugonna Eze and Scott Bomboy. Research was provided by Ugonna Eze and Lana Ulrich.
