The Unprecedented 2020 Election and the Future of Voting and Democracy in America
Out of Court
About the Program
In the midst of a deadly pandemic, Americans cast the most presidential election votes in US history. Before and after Election Day, the Trump campaign filed more than 20 lawsuits in state and federal court to change and block election rules, stop the counting, and challenge the results. Where do the legal challenges stand? In a replay of Bush v. Gore, could the election be decided by the US Supreme Court? Are reforms to how we vote in the works? How will mail-in voting and early in-person voting affect future elections? What’s in store for the Electoral College? Is public confidence in our election systems shaken? And what role should lawyers, law students, bar associations, and law schools play in protecting the right to vote and ensuring all votes are counted? To address these urgent and important questions, we will be joined by two nationally recognized experts on the legal, constitutional, and political aspects of American elections. Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley School of Law Richard L. Hasen, CNN Election Law Analyst & Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Political Science, UC Irvine School of Law The conversation will be moderated by Stephen Rohde, former President of the BHBA, a specialist in constitutional law, and author of American Words of Freedom.
