We the People Live: Supreme Court 2019 Term Preview

October 03, 2019


This week, We the People partnered with SCOTUSblog's podcast SCOTUStalk for a live preview of the Supreme Court's 2019 term – recording our show in front of a live National Constitution Center audience for the first time! Host Jeffrey Rosen was joined by SCOTUSblog's Amy Howe and John Elwood to preview the blockbuster cases of the upcoming term, on topics including LGBTQ rights under Title VII, immigration policies like DACA, the Second Amendment, school choice and the free exercise of religion, and more.



Amy Howe co-founded SCOTUSblog in 2002, and was editor and reporter until September 2016. She continues to serve as an independent contractor and reporter for SCOTUSblog, in addition to writing her own blog Howe on the Court. Howe served as counsel in over two dozen merits cases at the Supreme Court and argued two cases there. She has also taught at Stanford, Harvard, and several other law schools.

John Elwood is a contributor at SCOTUSblog where he writes the Relist Watch, monitoring cases the Court has relisted. He is a partner at Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C., where he is the head of the firm's appellate and Supreme Court practice. He has argued nine cases before the Supreme Court, and has argued before most of the federal courts of appeals. John was senior deputy in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel from 2005 to 2009, an assistant to the Solicitor General from 2002 to 2005, and was an attorney in the DOJ’s Criminal Division.

​​​​​​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.”
