"How will recent changes in election law influence 2012 elections?" Free program Weds 9/5, 6:30 pm #nyc
The New York City Bar Association and The Alliance for Justice cordially invite you to attend a discussion entitled:
How will Recent Changes in Election Law Influence the 2012 Elections?
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 6:30 pm-8:30 pm
House of the New York City Bar Association 42 West 44th St. (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.)
Meeting Hall on the Second Floor (the room will be open for people to begin gathering at 6:00)
With the media watching closely as the Supreme Court decision of Citizens United v Federal Election Commission takes the stage for its first presidential election, election law occupies an unfamiliar position of prominence. Similarly, the massive litigation challenging the Voting Rights Act propels election law and the redistricting process into the national spotlight. We will explore theses changes in election and campaign finance law and the impact they could have in November and beyond.
Moderator: NAN ARON, President, Alliance for Justice
Speakers: ANGELO FALCON, President, National Institute of Latino Policy; KEESHA GASKINS, Senior Counsel, Brennan Center for Justice; LAWRENCE LESSIG, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School; JOHN SAMPLES, Director, Cato Institute Center for Representative Government
