Law Review Symposium – Money in Politics

Friday, April 4, 9:00 a.m., Wesemann Hall

The symposium will address where election law has been, where it is currently, and where it is going. With the first panel, we intend to have an in-depth examination of Citizens United v. FEC and the prelude thereto. The second panel will address the current tax implications concerning campaign financing and will involve a discussion regarding the IRS controversy that arose this past summer. The last panel will examine campaign finance issues from the practitioners’ point of view.  The final panel will also touch on the McCutcheon v. FEC case, which was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in October 2013. Each panel is comprised of scholars and practitioners who are geographically and politically diverse to provide a balanced discussion of the issues involved.
