“Business in the Roberts Court” conference

The Supreme Court appears to have taken a greater interest in “business” issues in recent years. Has the court also become “pro-business”?

Experts from around the country will provide analysis and answers to that question during the George A. Leet Business Law Conference, “Business in the Roberts Court.”

The conference, held Friday, Sept. 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the School of Law Moot Courtroom, will examine the Supreme Court’s approach to cases important to business and look ahead to the pending 2016-17 term and beyond.

Speakers include Todd Henderson (University of Chicago), Catherine Sharkey (New York University), Suzette Malveaux (Catholic University of America), among many others.

Inspiration for the conference comes from a recent book, Business and the Roberts Court (Oxford University Press 2016), edited by Jonathan H. Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Center for Business Law and Regulation.

The conference is free and open to the public, but advance registration on the School of Law website is necessary to attend the event.

Continuing Legal Education credit (4.5 hours) is available. CWRU alumni can attend for a discounted CLE fee of $100. For non-alumni, the CLE fee is $200.
