ABTL Annual Membership Meeting and Dinner/CLE Program

The US Supreme Court has been in the spotlight as vacancies have arisen and contentious confirmation proceedings have ensued.  What can we expect from the newly constituted Court?  Will there be sharp breaks from past jurisprudence? What direction will the Court take in civil rights, business litigation, and the other critical issues that will find their way onto the Court's docket?  Is there an institutional crisis?  

Join our extremely distinguished panel for what will be an enlightening and provocative examination of the Supreme Court today and in the future.
