Heritage to Host Review of Supreme Court Term on July 11

Now that the Supreme Court’s term has ended, there’s plenty of discussion of the short-term political implications of its rulings, as well as the long-term statutory and constitutional impact.  But the Heritage Foundation offers a particularly impressive panel at its annual “Scholars & Scribes Review the Rulings” this Thursday, July 11, at 11:00 a.m. The two-panel event will feature frequent Supreme Court advocates Chuck Cooper, Tom Goldstein, and Stephanos Bibas as well as journalists Jess Bravin, Adam Liptak, and David Savage. Heritage legal scholars John Malcolm and James Swanson will moderate.
