The Supreme Court will reconvene next month to begin another year full of landmark decisions. Among the most anticipated of cases on the calendar is Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, an affirmative action case that will address the use of race as a factor in undergraduate admissions decisions. The Court is also expected to review cases involving same sex marriage, abortion, voting rights, and campaign finance.
Keeping up-to-date on the Supreme Court’s schedule is a great way to stay current on legal issues, especially during law school when you will find that SCOTUS decisions often overlap with course material.
