The first Monday in October marks a new term for the U.S. Supreme Court, and we’ve got University of Utah legal scholars Amy Wildermuth and RonNell Andersen Jones in studio. We’ll talk about the dynamics of the bench and the effect of President Trump’s appointment Neil Gorsuch. We’ll also break down some of the cases that are on the docket like gerrymandering, cake baking, and cell phone privacy. We'll also throw in a few procedural questions for you SCOTUS nerds.

Amy Wildermuth is also a Professor of Law at the University of Utah with expertise in U.S. Supreme Court practice and administrative law. Wildermuth clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens of the Supreme Court.

RonNell Andersen Jones is a Professor in the College of Law at the University of Utah. She teaches and writes about the intersection between the media and the courts, with a particular focus on the U.S. Supreme Court. Jones clerked for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
