CLE Session

CLE Session : Laboratories for Democracy?: Recent Challenges and Transformations in Election Law
Noon – 1:00 p.m. | Moot Court Room | Free
Atiba R. Ellis is the Laura B. Chisolm Distinguished Research Scholar and Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. A nationally noted voting rights scholar, he will lead a CLE session (one-hour credit for Ohio attorneys, pending approval) on election law.

Recent local and national legislative enactments and court decisions have impacted the way election law currently works. While there have been some advances regarding voting rights, disputes around election integrity, voter suppression and redistricting continue to dominate the field. This lecture will review recent major judicial decisions and legislative enactments around the law of democracy and legal issues that will likely impact the 2024 election season.
