The Supreme Court's 2017-18 Term - the first Term with the Court at full strength with the confirmation of Associate Justice Neil M. Gorsuch - is likely to be a blockbuster, with significant cases concerning immigration, arbitration, the First Amendment, voting rights, and more.  But some of the most important questions about this Term are not on the Court's docket.  How will the addition of Justice Gorsuch shape the Court?  Will the Court be drawn into cases concerning presidential power, and how will it handle those cases?

Join ABTL's Northern California Chapter and a distinguished panel of experts for a mid-term review of the U.S. Supreme Court's 2017-18 Term, and a discussion of the Court's future in the Trump era.
