From the rushed and controversial appointment of Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the possibility that Democratic presidential nominee Joseph Biden Jr. will pack the court, the Supreme Court has featured prominently in recent headlines. But with the Supreme Court figured to play a potentially significant role in the U.S. presidential election, the stakes could get even higher.
Just weeks after the election and roughly a month since Justice Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation, The New York Times’s Adam Liptak will join the New York Press Club to discuss everything from the state of the election to the future of the highest court in the United States.
Adam Liptak will speak with the New York Press Club on November 17 at 7 p.m. The conversation will be moderated by Jennifer Williams-Alvarez.
