President Donald Trump announced his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy  on the Supreme Court last night: Judge Brett Kavanaugh from the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. UC Davis Law School Dean Kevin Johnson and Professor Aaron Tang join Insight to discuss the confirmation process, Brett Kavanaugh’s potential impact on the court next term, and the major cases decided this term.

We also take a look back at some of last term's key cases impacting privacy, immigration, unions, free speech, LGBT civil rights and more that wrapped up in October 2017 with the help of Kennedy.
