2023 Emroch Lecture Series: A Constitutional Right to Vote with Richard Hasen

Mar 27
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
University of Richmond, School of Law

Join the University of Richmond School of Law as they welcome Richard Hasen, professor of law and political science and director of the Safeguarding Democracy Project at UCLA Law, for a presentation entitled "A Constitutional Right to Vote: Why We Need It and How to Get It."

It’s time to go on the offensive to protect voting rights. The quadrennial angst this country endures each presidential election cycle over whether we can hold free and fair elections is the product of a dysfunctional, decentralized, partisan election system administered under a national constitution that does not adequately protect voters’ ability to vote and to have each eligible ballot fairly and accurately counted. Professor Richard Hasen will discuss why we need to amend the Constitution to protect the right to vote, what should be in such an amendment, and how to get such an amendment passed in our current polarized political and legal system.

Lunch will be provided.

This program will be held in person in the Moot Courtroom at the University of Richmond School of Law.
