1h 6m

Created on September 21, 2020





The Supreme Court's 2019-2020 term was packed with blockbusters. The court weighed in on several important issues-affecting both businesses and individuals-including the scope of executive and agency power, the role of stare decisis and textualism, and the continuing vitality of constitutional and civil rights protections. The Court also refused to address several fundamental questions that are likely to have a continuing presence on the Court's docket. Finally, this term was notable for the unprecedented steps the Court took to address the COVID-19 disruptions during its own oral argument and in federal courts across the country. 

This course, presented by Sheila Baynes, Upnit K. Bhatti, Monica Haymond, and Sarah Sloan 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.
