[ Academia ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Political Process : This is a useful course for students interested in political law, particularly election law and campaign finance rules. Whether you represent business clients or others seeking to influence the political process at some point, you should know something about the legal limitations on lobbying and making contributions to political candidates.
General course Description:
This seminar will cover topics in the general area of law and politics, specifically the law concerning elections. The discussions will focus on the following five case studies: Redistricting; Bush v. Gore and the 2000 election; Campaign Finance; Party Primaries and Conventions; and The Voting Rights Act. Although we will discuss court cases, much of the seminar will include "war stories" from those involved in the cases or legislative battles. Students who plan to enroll in "Regulation of the Political Process" are encouraged to take this discussion seminar as well. But that class is not a prerequisite for this seminar. Note: Los Altos location is not walkable. Winter Quarter. Class meeting dates: TBD.
