On Saturday, September 12 at 4:15pm, the Supreme Court Preview will feature a panel on "What is the Future of the Supreme Court? Potential Reforms, Their Likelihood, and Their Implications." Democrats recently unveiled “structural court reforms” as part of their platform. These potential reforms include, among others, adding seats to the Supreme Court, making changes to the confirmation process, and shortening the Justices’ terms of office. This panel will discuss which reforms seem most likely to be adopted and what concerns are motivating them. Twenty-five W&M students will also bring their questions to the panel about the future of the Supreme Court.
