The Supreme Court has repeatedly redefined and revolutionized the fundamentals of American life – the power of the presidency, race relations, church-state issues, the permissible scope of government regulation, freedom of speech, the rights of the accused … and on and on.
In the last few years, the Court has willingly taken on some of the toughest issues we face – the rules of war, environmental regulation, gun control, affirmative action, campaign finance reform, and much more. Many commentators feel that, for better or worse, the present Court is the most activist Court in decades, and is willing, even eager, to undo much of what prior Courts have done, and to tackle the emerging and unique issues of the 21st century.
One of the most important issues the country now faces is, simply, this – What’s next? How will the Supreme Court change America in the future?
PBI has assembled a panel of Supreme Court experts to present their views and debate the direction the Court will take and ultimately, illuminate how the Supreme Court could change the fabric of our nation. Some of the issues the Court is likely to address include:
The freedom to create and alter life: in vitro fertilization, cloning and stem cells
Freedom of speech in a digital age: the regulation of the Internet:
Privacy in the 21st century: who’s got the right to know what you’ve said, what you’ve bought, where you’ve gone, what you’ve read and where you are?
The rules of war in the age of terrorism: who wins in the battle among the President, the Congress, the Constitution and international law?
The limits on federal regulation: is the pendulum about to swing the other way?
Is there a constitutional right to education and health care?
Intellectual property rights in the 21st century: who will own what ideas?
Church and state: how will the Supreme Court confront the conflicts between Christianity, atheism, Islam and the immigration-driven increase in other religious adherents?
Join us for another dynamic PBI public policy and look into the future of law and policy in the United States of America.
