BC Law ACS welcomes Professor Pam Karlan for a discussion of the 2020 Election

Zoom, please register

The ACS Boston College Law Student Chapter is thrilled to host Professor Pam Karlan for a discussion on the 2020 Election. This talk will address the logistical, legal, and political barriers to full participation in the upcoming election. Professor Karlan will explore not only the COVID-related issues in this election, but also some of the larger issues--for example, the reenfranchisement of returning offenders.

Professor Karlan is the Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Professor of Public Interest Law at Harvard University and the director of the school’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic. She recently presented a winning oral argument at the Supreme Court as attorney for Bostock and Zarda. She also provided expert testimony during the Trump Impeachment Hearings about Constitutional abuses of power. She has written extensively about the political process of law, including the book "The Law of Democracy," coauthored by Samuel Issacharoff.

Please join us for this exciting and timely discussion.
