Voting Rights: Then, Now, and Tomorrow

Presented on March 3, 2022

Via Zoom and In-Person at UC Hastings' Cotchett Law Center

Voting is the cornerstone of democracy! At this presentation, an unparalleled panel of experts—including Hon. Thelton Henderson (Ret.), Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Pam Karlan, Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, and Prof. Brian Landsberg—discussed voting rights in the United States, both historically and into the future, and examined not only federal and state voting laws, but also the different tools used to increase (or suppress) voter turnout and access.

This event was co-sponsored by the Ninth Judicial Circuit Historical Society, the Northern District Practice Program, and the Northern District of California FBA Chapter.
