Free speech rights of public school students. Voting rights and ballot harvesting. Religious freedom. Abortion.
In its past term, the U.S. Supreme Court has either ruled on or agreed to weigh in on cases involving these and other consequential issues. And for the 11th year in a row, UC Irvine’s Law School will host its “Supreme Court Term in Review” looking at the importance of such key cases.
The virtual event, open to the public, will be moderated by Rick Hasen, an election law expert and the Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Political Science at UCI. Panelists will include former UCI Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, who now is the dean at Berkeley Law school, UCI law professor Stephen Lee, as well as attorneys who have argued before the Supreme Court and a journalist who writes about the law.
The free event is scheduled from 10 am to noon on July 6 via Zoom. To register, go to calendar.law.uci.edu.
The 11th annual Term in Review is sponsored by the Irvine-based LawWorks, which provides work spaces and other services to lawyers, and TorkLaw, a personal injury law firm.
