Today marks the opening of the new term for the United States Supreme Court. 

 

 The New York Time’s reporter Adam Liptak has an interesting article on the opening of the  term.  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/02/us/supreme-court-turns-to-criminal-and-first-amendment-cases.html?_r=1&hp. He reports that criminal law issuessuch as  effective assistance of counsel and the standards for the use of eye witness identification will dominate the early part of the term   Similarly the Washington Post also has an  article on its view of the opening of the new Supreme Court term. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-term-will-include-cases-highlighting-extent-of-federal-power/2011/09/29/gIQA3lbXDL_story.html?hpid=z2. For members of the American Judges Assoiation who have had the benefit of hearing the lecture of Professor Edwin Chemerinsky at the annual conference we simply view the begining of the term as an opportunity for Professor Chemerinsky to begin preperation for the next  AJA  Annual confernce September 30th through October 5th  in New Orleans.
