Event Details

You(th) Decide is a forum for high school students in Chicago and the Metropolitan area to explore and deliberate a pending case before the Supreme Court of the United States. This year's case is Lee v. Tam, bringing the world of rock music to the court. Tam sought to register a trademark on his band name “The Slants.” The USPTO refused after finding that the mark is disparaging toward individuals of Asian ancestry. Is the statutory prohibition against registering “disparaging marks” an unconstitutional governmental regulation of speech in violation of the First Amendment?

Conducted by the Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago (CRFC) and the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States (ISCOTUS), You(th) Decide asks students to study a pending case before the Court and to convene for a day of deliberation with peers, law students, and law professors. You(th) Decide is a rare opportunity for students from across the region to exchange ideas and discover common ground.

Please note that lunch will be provided for students.
