Topics covered typically include Redistricting and Gerrymandering, Judicial Selection, Direct Democracy, Campaign Finance, Post-Election Disputes, Ballot Access as well as others. We will read major cases such as Bush v. Gore, FEC v. McConnell, Shaw v. Reno and Lulac v. Perry. It is a great course for students interested in law school or those who seek to enrich their understanding of the structure of American Democracy.
