ILR Symposium to Focus on Election Law
The Indiana Law Review hosted "The Law of Democracy," a Symposium focusing on election law, on April 8-9 at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis. The keynote speech was given by Professor Heather Gerken of Yale Law School on Thursday, April 8th, in the Wynne Courtroom. Three panels over the two days featured twelve leading election law scholars discussing campaign finance, election administrating, and voting rights.
“This symposium is a major event that will bring many of the brightest academic minds in the country into one room to discuss topics of immediate interest to the way American democracy is structured,” says Associate Professor Michael J. Pitts , an expert on Election Law. “The issues tackled, such as how our polling places are run and how our election campaigns are financed, have implications for both how the State of Indiana and the United States as a whole conduct elections.”
There was no cost to attend the Symposium, and 5.0 hours of Indiana continuing legal education credits were available (approval pending).
