Presented by the CT Bar Institute
About the Program
The US Supreme Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade has many questioning whether the new Roberts Court approaches stare decisis in a fundamentally different way than its predecessors. In the last five years alone, the Court has overruled major precedents and upended long-standing law, running the gamut from Second Amendment rights to religious exercise. At the same time, the Court has declined opportunities to overrule other influential but deeply criticized (and polarizing) precedent. Join us for a panel discussion where leading scholars will explore this tension, discuss where they see the Court heading, and offer their perspectives on what role precedent plays in that journey.
You Will Learn
• About what role stare decisis plays on the Roberts Court
• What recent major precedents have been upended or overturned and what the larger significance is of those decisions
• About what these trends mean moving forward
