Annual Constitutional Law Symposium 2022

Product ID: CA3393M
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

The scoop on the SCOTUS

2022 was a historic year for the United States Supreme Court, no matter how you look at it. It decided high-profile cases on guns, religion, and abortion. The Court welcomed its first Black woman justice. And as of September 2022, it saw a drop in public approval with a record high of 58% of Americans with a negative view of the Court’s job performance.1 That’s a whole lot going on, and that’s why we’re going to dive into some of the most significant decisions and what they mean for the future at the Annual Constitutional Law Symposium 2022.

You’ll take an in-depth look at the latest laws and litigation on abortion and reproductive health services now that regulation has been left to the states. Additionally, you’ll hear a variety of perspectives on:

  • Recent freedom of religion cases
  • COVID-19 vaccination litigation
  • Student speech
  • Representing mentally impaired clients
