Washburn University School of Law's Center for Law and Government and the Washburn Law Journal are co-sponsoring a symposium entitled "Election Law Today and Beyond" on Thursday, February 25 in the Washburn Room of the Memorial Union at SW 18th Street and SW Jewell Avenue on the Washburn University Campus. The event is free and open to the public but registration is required.
The symposium will critically explore and evaluate the current state and future direction of election law and regulation in the United States. There will be a special focus on the 2016 Presidential election.
Three distinct panels will discuss Campaign Finance Laws, Election Law Federalism, and the Voting Rights Act, with each panel including a number of speakers and a moderator. The format will allow each panelist to present highlights of his or her work, thoughts and positions on issues germane to the topic, and highlight articles that the speakers may be writing for the Washburn Law Journal. Following the initial presentations, the panelists will take questions from both the audience and one another on the information and positions presented.
In conjunction with the symposium, Washburn Law Journal’s Board of Editors will be devoting a future issue to the publication of articles written by symposium panelists.
