The Supreme Court’s current term

June 07, 2018


In the past few weeks the Supreme Court has begun releasing some of the major decisions of the term. These cases touch on important constitutional issues from First Amendment rights of free exercise and free expression to federalism, the Fourth Amendment and privacy, and more. But these are just the beginning of the blockbuster decisions as we await the Court’s pronouncements on immigration, executive power, and union rights. 

Joining our Jeffrey Rosen to discuss the Court’s blockbuster term are two of America’s leading scholars of constitutional law: Michael Dorf and Ilya Shapiro.



Michael Dorf is the Robert S. Stevens Professor of Law at the Cornell University Law School. He has written over ninety scholarly articles and essays on constitutional law and related subjects.


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


Jeffrey Rosen is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Constitution Center, the only institution in America chartered by Congress “to disseminate information about the United States Constitution on a nonpartisan basis.”
