Join the solicitor general of Texas and Supreme Court experts from Alliance Defending Freedom, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC for a two-panel discussion that will examine the recent Supreme Court term’s landmark decisions impacting free speech and religious liberty, and what the court’s treatment of these constitutionally protected freedoms signal as we move into the 2018 term.

The first panel of this “Constitution Day” event will feature a review of the free speech and religious liberty implications of the court’s decisions in the 2017 Supreme Court term, including a focus on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission and National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra. The second panel will forecast the future of the Supreme Court and review the cases likely to shape application of the Establishment Clause related to war memorials and public prayer. Bloomberg News Supreme Court Correspondent Greg Stohr and SCOTUSblog co-founder Amy Howe will moderate the discussions, which will conclude with time for audience Q&A with the panelists.
