|12:00pm – 1:15pm||The Law of/and the 2020 Elections|
The upcoming (and ongoing) elections have already provoked a flood of litigation and legal questions, and are likely to only raise additional questions as we get closer to—and perhaps even after—election day. What are the basic ground rules for presidential elections? How has COVID affected those rules? Why are there seemingly so many lawsuits about the election already? And are we headed for another Bush v. Gore? Join a panel of experts for an open discussion of (some of) the many ways the law and lawyers could have a lot to say about what happens in November.
Panelists: Reed Clay, Founder and CEO, Crestline Solutions and former COO, State of Texas Joey Fishkin, The Marrs McLean Professor in Law, UT Law Mimi Marziani, President, Texas Civil Rights Project and Adjunct Professor, UT Law
Moderator: Steve Vladeck, Charles Alan Wright Chair in Federal Courts, UT LawFor more information visit https://law.utexas.edu/calendar/2020/10/14/57665/
