Hammer Forum: Erwin Chemerinsky on the Supreme Court

As engaged citizens it is important for us all to understand the role the Supreme Court plays in our lives and its decisions impact us all. Erwin Chemerinsky, one of the nation’s foremost Constitutional scholars, covers these issues in a series of three Hammer Forums.

The first evening focuses on the most recent Supreme Court term and its momentous decisions on cases related to abortion, the second amendment, climate change, and immigration, among others.

The second night shifts to the current term: what the cases are, what the court seems to be emphasizing, and what the ramifications of these decisions could be.

The final installment concentrates on constitutional interpretation and the role originalism plays or doesn't play in the Court's decisions.
