Thursday, October 12, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in The Den Coffeehouse at the Connecticut Ave location.
Join us for a focused discussion of the United States Supreme Court with Joseph Hartman of Georgetown University. We’ll cover key decisions from the 2022-2023 term and preview of some of the high-profile cases set for argument on the Court’s upcoming docket. We will also discuss the Court’s current significance, review key decisions from the Court’s recent terms, and look ahead to the cases looming on the horizon as the Nine take the bench for the new term. As polarization continues, the United States Supreme Court plays a central role not only in American law, but also in American politics, perhaps fulfilling the prophecy of that peerless observer of American life, Alexis de Tocqueville, that “scarcely any political question arises in the United States that is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question.”
