With the 2020 Presidential election right around the corner, The National Judicial College is convening a live, virtual panel discussion with leading experts on election law and the role of judges.

This year’s national and state elections face daunting challenges, including the Covid-19 pandemic, social unrest, questions about the Postal Service’s capability, and a deeply divided polity. Many expect that election results may not be available for weeks and that there could be multiple legal challenges to those results and processes. What should judges know and be prepared to address in this complex time? Please join us for a lively discussion of democracy’s most fundamental right and obligation focused on the particular role of judges in our constitutional democracy. The panel will provide a summary of the law and current issues, and respond to questions from judges.

Panelists:
Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California Berkeley School of Law
Lisa Marshall Manheim the Charles I. Stone Associate Professor of Law at the University of Washington School of Law
Daniel P. Tokaji the Fred W. & Vi Miller Dean and Professor of Law at the University of Wisconsin Law School

Moderator:
Dean Kellye Testy, President and CEO of the Law School Admission Council
