During the October 2012 Term, the Supreme Court ruled on cases presenting some of the most contested legal issues, including: the constitutionality of a key part of the Voting Rights Act; the permissibility of affirmative action in higher education; the reach of the Alien Tort Statute; the constitutionality of laws mandating the collection of the accused’s DNA before a criminal conviction; the patentabilty of a human gene; and important questions of federal procedure involving class actions. All of these cases make for an exciting “year in review.” At this program, a prominent panel of former Supreme Court law clerks, constitutional scholars, litigators, and two federal district court judges will examine, review, and debate the leading Supreme Court decisions of the Term and their impact on the future. The speakers represent diverse points of view and perspectives and will provide insightful discussions of the Court’s decisions. The panel will specifically cover the most important decisions from the Supreme Court’s Term, which includes cases touching on several areas of law: Affirmative Action (Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin) Election Law (Shelby County v. Holder) Foreign Relations and International Law (Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co.) Civil Procedure & Federal Jurisdiction (American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant and Comcast Corp. v. Behrend) Intellectual Property (Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc.) Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure (Maryland v. King and Missouri v. McNeely) This timely program will be of interest to all criminal or civil practitioners.
