The Supreme Court is back in session.

The fallout from last term’s blockbuster rulings on abortion and gun laws continues to play out on the groundand in the courts. Yet, this week saw the kick off of a new SCOTUS term, one in which the 6-3 conservative supermajority is poised to deliver another set of opinions that could profoundly alter American life. This time, the cases deal with issues like voting rights, election law, environmental protections and the constitutionality of affirmative action.

Kate Shaw is a professor of law at Yeshiva University’s Cardozo School of Law and a co-host of the podcast Strict Scrutiny. She joined Diane to preview this term, and talk about the court’s shift to the right.
