Join us online November 13 from noon to 1 p.m. for a one hour CLE presentation entitled The Effect of the Presidential Election on the Supreme Court presented by Professor Wilson R. Huhn. Several justices of the United States Supreme Court are of advanced age and may be nearing retirement. As a consequence the presidential election of 2012 may well determine the future composition of the Supreme Court. At present the Court is narrowly divided upon a number of important constitutional questions. Depending upon who wins the election, the interpretation of the Constitution may change in relation to those questions, including the following: health care reform, campaign finance reform, affirmative action, abortion, abortion protests, separation of church and state, political gerrymandering, and preemption of state lawsuits in the law of tort. This program will describe how the Court is presently split on each of these issues and what the outcome of the election may mean for the future.
The cost is $25 for attorneys requesting CLE. Students may attend for free, but registration is required. To Register online, click here or contact Michele Novachek at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited and will be granted on a space-available basis, so prompt registration is encouraged.
