The 2015-16 Supreme Court Term was unique mostly because of the unexpected death of Justice Scalia in the middle of the term.  But the Court endured, hearing and deciding contested legal issues surrounding immigration, voting rights, affirmative action, and class certification, among others.  The panelists each practice in the areas directly affected by the Court's rulings.  Each panelist will discuss the issues presented, the outcome, and the impact of the opinion.
