Katie Pfannenstiel, (402) 472-8382,
Jessica Ring Amunson, Jenner & Block

During her talk, Amunson will discuss the Supreme Court’s election law jurisprudence, including how that jurisprudence has changed as the Court has changed in recent years. With a particular focus on two cases before the Court this Term—Moore v. Harper and Merrill v. Milligan—the presenter will examine how the Court has treated claims that some voting laws or practices impose disparate burdens on racial or political minorities. The presenter will also discuss how election law litigation proceeds to the Supreme Court, including a discussion of the Court’s “shadow docket.” This lecture is part of the College of Law’s Law & Democracy Series, provided by generous support from Barb and Ron Schaefer.

This program has been approved for 1.0 continuing legal education credit in Nebraska.
