Law of Campaigns: Political and Election Law

Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 1

Political law, and more specifically the study and practice of the authorities in the world of campaign finance and election administration, is certainly a niche field, and one that has received relatively little recent attention prior to the 2020 election. While many Americans go to the polls and vote for candidates without giving much thought to the path candidates navigate to get to that point, the process of declaring candidacy, campaigning for office, and winning (or losing!) an election is truly a legal minefield. This course will cover the legal issues that practitioners advising political candidates and committees face and will explore the relevant authorities in the space.
