High-profile cases from this year’s docket included those dealing with Obamacare, the Arizona immigration law, and life sentences for juvenile offenders. Please join us for Mr. Ho’s overview of the past year’s important Term and the many significant developments that may have a profound effect on our nation and its laws.
