The purpose of this course is to give students a basic understanding of the major themes in the legal regulation of elections and politics. We will cover major Supreme Court cases on topics of voting rights, reapportionment/redistricting, ballot access, regulation of political parties, campaign finance, and gerrymandering. In addition to examining doctrine, we will focus attention on competing political philosophies and empirical assumptions underlying the Law of Democracy.


Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to risk being dropped without notice.
