The U.S. Supreme Court: Update 2023

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29, 11:00 A.M.–12:30 P.M.


In its last term, the Supreme Court’s new conservative majority flexed its muscle and handed down a series of controversial decisions that ap- pear to have shaken public belief in the Court’s impartiality. Noted legal scholar and commentator Stephen Vladeck joins us again for an update on the Court’s current term and his thoughts on what we might expect in the future.

Stephen Vladeck is a nationally recognized expert on the federal courts and constitutional law. He currently holds the Charles Alan Wright Chair in Federal Courts at the University of Texas School of Law and is a distin- guished scholar at the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law. He has argued a number of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Texas Supreme Court, has served as an expert witness in federal and state courts, and has received numerous awards for his legal scholarship. Professor Vladeck is also recognized for his prolific popular writing, his podcasts and blogs, his legal casebooks on national security, and his appearances as CNN’s Supreme Court analyst. His new book on the Court, The Shadow Docket, is scheduled for release in May 2023.
