Election Law in the Supreme Court

University of Nebraska College of Law, Room 125, Lincoln, Nebraska

Jessica Ring Amunson of Jenner & Block will discuss the Supreme Court's election law jurisprudence, including how that jurisprudence has changed as the Court has changed in recent years. With a particular focus on two cases before the Court this term -- Moore v. Harper and Merrill v. Milligan -- the presenter will examine how the Court has treated claims that some voting laws or practices impose disparate burdens on racial or political minorities. The presenter will also discuss how election law litigation proceeds to the Supreme Court, including a discussion of the Court's "shadow docket." This program was approved for 1.0 continuing legal education credit in Nebraska.
