1h 2m

Created on September 20, 2021





During its 2020-2021 term, the Supreme 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 contours of the First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise. This term was also notable for the new composition of the Court and the accompanying realignment of the Court's ideological center, as well as the national conversation regarding Supreme Court reform.
