The Long Hill Township Public Library is pleased to present the virtual program “What’s the Verdict?” on Thursday, September 28 at 7:00 pm. Ian Drake, professor of Political Science and Law at Montclair State University, will lead attendees in considering some of the pending cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. In the 2022 term, the Court will review cases regarding the power of the government under environmental laws, the redistricting of congressional seats, the federal and state governments’ relations with Native American tribes, free speech, and, perhaps most notably, affirmative action in college admissions. In this talk, participants will review the most important cases the Court has taken on for the coming year.

Drake obtained his PhD in American History from the University of Maryland in 2010. His teaching interests include the American judiciary and legal system, the US Supreme Court and constitutional history, and the history and contemporary study of law and society. Prior to earning his PhD in history, he practiced insurance and tort law.
