Constitutional experts selected by the American Constitution Society, the Federalist Society, and the Federal Bar Association will discuss and debate the potentially explosive Supreme Court term that begins this October.

The relatively quiet period following the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh is now firmly over. This year, the Court will decide blockbuster cases including:

• Does federal employment law protect gay, lesbian, and transgender employees from discrimination?
• Does the Constitution require unanimous jury verdicts for criminal convictions?
• Can President Trump revoke DACA?
• Does a New York law that makes transporting guns illegal violate the Second Amendment?
• Can the federal government refuse to pay Obamacare insurer subsidies?
• And other headline-grabbing cases, likely including: President Trump's unilateral revision of asylum laws, state laws restricting access to abortion, decisions affecting rights of religious entities, and many more.
