Keynote: U.S. Supreme Court Update

October 28, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Back by popular demand, longtime education law correspondent Mark Walsh of Education Week will once again discuss key education cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. These include cases decided in the last term and those worth watching in the current term or coming down the pike. Among the biggest cases to be covered are Perez v. Sturgis Public Schools, about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act; the two cases dealing with the consideration of race in college admissions, Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina and Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard College; and the two cases about the Biden administration’s student-debt relief plan, Biden v. Nebraska and Department of Education v. Brown. There will also be a discussion of cases the court considered on copyright, the First Amendment status of “true threats,” and religious accommodation in the workplace. Walsh will also provide his fractured multimedia take on general Supreme Court news of the past year.

Mark Walsh has covered education issues in the U.S. Supreme Court and lower courts for more than 25 years. He previously served as Washington editor of Education Week, supervising coverage of federal education policy matters, as well as the 2004 and 2008 presidential and congressional elections. He also writes the Supreme Court Report column for the ABA Journal, the magazine of the American Bar Association. He is a regular contributor to SCOTUS blog, the website devoted to coverage of the Court. He has a degree in journalism, with a minor in political science, from Northwestern University.
