2021 Election Law Program Symposium
Join the William & Mary Law ACS Student Chapter for the 2021 ELS Symposium that will examine the role of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) in the 2020 election and its potential reform going forward, both as a tool to address voting rules and districting maps that harm minority voters.
It will reflect on why and whether the VRA litigation remains vital and will explore emerging trends in VRA-related reform efforts as we move into a post-Trump, post-pandemic era. Attendees will gain valuable context and knowledgeable projections about the VRA and its role going forward with help from respected practitioners and scholars who work in the minority voting rights arena.
This event will feature:
Jessica Amunson (Jenner & Block, Brnovich counsel)
Adriel I. Cepeda Derieux (ACLU)
Leah Aden (NAACP LDF, Shelby County litigant, Section 2 expert)
Mark Braden (BakerHostetler, Shelby County litigant)
