SCOTUS: Highlights of October Term 2018-2019


Created on December 12, 2019




The Supreme Court's October Term 2018 was a fascinating one, full of important decisions and hints about what may be on the Court's agenda going forward. The Court grappled in several cases with the doctrine of stare decisis. It issued high-profile decisions in cases involving political gerrymandering and the addition of a new question to the census form. The Court also issued a number of decisions with significant implications for commercial litigants, including in the areas of antitrust law and arbitration. And two cases resolving questions of administrative law revealed sharp divisions on the Court.

This course, presented by Jennifer Keighley, Matt Shahabian, Chris Cariello, and Rachel Shalev of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe's Supreme Court and Appellate Group, examines the highlights of an exciting term and offers insight into the implications of the Court's decisions.
