Same-sex marriage, affirmative action in college admissions and challenges to the Dodd-Frank Act’s regulation of the financial services industry are just some of the topics to be determined in the next session of the Supreme Court, which begins Oct. 1. University of Maryland Carey School of Law professors Douglas Colbert, Michael Greenberger, and Sherrilyn Ifill will discuss several of the important cases which the Court will hear at a forum this Friday, Sept. 21.
Co-sponsored by the Maryland League of Women Voters, the panel discussion takes place from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in the Ceremonial Moot Court Room. You can also watch it online, in real time, by using this link.
The forum is the School’s observance of Constitution Day, which was created by Congress in 2004 to celebrate the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. The law requires that any school receiving federal funds of any kind provide educational programming on the history of the Constitution.
