    The Appellate Lawyers Association (ALA) and the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) Cordially Invite You to Attend an Appellate Practice Seminar:

    THE FUTURE OF VOTING RIGHTS

    2022 VIRTUAL LUNCHTIME APPELLATE SEMINAR

    Please attend our appellate practice seminar on the future of voting rights. The presentation will cover the impact of the Voting Rights Act (VRA), including the two recent Supreme Court cases that have narrowed the scope of the VRA. The presentation will also address two voting cases the Supreme Court has taken up this term, including the North Carolina case that could dramatically change the way our elections are conducted.

    The Presenter will be Denise Lieberman, adjunct professor at Washington University Law School, where she teaches voting rights. Professor Lieberman is also Executive Director and General Counsel for the Missouri Voter Protection Coalition and has been a voting rights attorney for more than 20 years. She recently made a presentation on this topic to The Missouri Bar. ALA President Jonathan B. Amarilio will moderate.

    The Appellate Lawyers Association (ALA) and the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois (WBAI) Cordially Invite You to Attend an Appellate Practice Seminar:

    UNCERTAIN ISSUES AFTER
    DOBBS

    2022 VIRTUAL LUNCHTIME
    APPELLATE SEMINAR

                                            
    Please attend our appellate practice seminar on the legal landscape following the United States Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. These issues include whether other substantive due process rights are now also subject to reconsideration by the Court, whether emergency rooms are required to perform abortions when necessary to stabilize a patient experiencing a medical emergency, whether states with abortion bans can bar travel to states without them, whether states can ban abortion inducing drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and whether pharmacists may refuse to fill prescriptions for therapeutic drugs that can be used to induce abortions.

    Our presenter, Ian Millhiser, has been writing and speaking about these topics. He is a Senior Correspondent on the Supreme Court for VOX, served as a Law Clerk to a Justice of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and has authored two books on the Supreme Court. The discussion will be moderated by ALA President Jonathan B. Amarilio.
