The Supreme Court's 2016-17 Term

Professor Glenn Smith

When the Supreme Court adjourns for the summer in late June, it will have handed down important decisions on free speech, voting rights, the death penalty, civil rights, consumer protection, gender discrimination, and other high-profile civil and criminal issues. At least as interesting will be how the Court functioned during the Term without a ninth justice. Professor Smith will recap the Term's most important decisions and offer some thoughts on the Court's direction and the likely impact of a newly appointed Justice.

Instructor: Glenn Smith is Professor of Law at California Western School of Law, where he teaches and writes primarily about the Supreme Court and constitutional law. A longtime Osher favorite, he is also a Visiting Professor of Political Science at UCSD, a frequent media commentator on current constitutional controversies, and co-author of Constitutional Law for Dummies. This will be his sixth annual summer lecture wrapping up the Supreme Court’s just-completed Term.
