Deep Dive: The Supreme Court 2016, the Election, and the Future of the Constitution

Regardless the outcome of the 2016 election, a Trump or Clinton victory will transform the future of the Constitution, from affirmative action to campaign finance to voting rights and more. We will look at the history of how the Court has been transformed by pivotal elections in the past, examine the politics and prospects of the Garland nomination; and explore the Roberts Court—its most recent decisions and what they say about how the Court is functioning now and how it will change after the election.

Festival: 2016
