Election Law

Course Description

Nothing is more central to a democracy than free and fair elections. Electoral Law is the study of the rules, both Constitutional and Statutory, as well as the theoretical underpinnings of a just society. In this course, we will examine the law governing the rights of citizens to participate in the political process. Special attention will be devoted to laws regulating the right to vote, one-person-one-vote, voter disenfranchisement, campaign finance, and legislative districting. There will be several assignments that will be graded on a completion basis.
