Supreme Court Preview of the 2021-2022 Term
September 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Partner, Kirkland & Ellis and 43rd Solicitor General of the United States
The Honorable Noel Francisco

The Supreme Court returns October 4th for its 2021-2022 Term, and the justices will hear cases on a number of important issues: abortion, the 2nd Amendment, religious liberty, disability discrimination, national security, and more.
For instance, in Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization, the Court will determine whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional. In New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, the Court will decide whether New York’s restrictive firearm licensing violates the 2nd Amendment. In Carsen v. Makin, the Court will determine whether the state violates the 1st or 14th Amendments if it excludes religious schools from otherwise generally available student aid because the school offers religious instruction. In CVS Pharmacy Inc. v. Doe, the Court will decide whether a facially neutral policy that results in disparate impact for certain disabled groups violates the ACA and Rehabilitation Act’s anti-discrimination clauses. In United States v. Zubaydah, the Court will decide whether the 9th Circuit erred by allowing discovery of documents the government claims are covered by the state-secrets privilege.
