Seton Hall Law ACS: Voting Rights in the Modern Age

Faculty Library; Law School Campus, Newark, NJ

Join the Seton Hall Law American Constitution Society on April 4, 2022, for a panel discussion centered around the law of voting rights. This area of the law has undergone significant and far-reaching change at the state level since the Supreme Court's 2013 decision of Shelby County v. Holder. A rising tide of state laws seeking to dramatically change voting rights in several battleground states, with changes ranging from restrictions pertaining mail-in ballots to even restrictions on providing water to voters waiting at the polls, warrant an in-depth discussion analyzing the interaction of federal voting rights protections, state voting laws, and the principles of federalism as they exist in today's American republic. Refreshments and reception will follow. 

A registration link will be provided at a later date--registrants will be emailed a link to participate in our discussion on the day of the event.
