2013 Law Alumni Association (LAA) Annual Fall Conference: "The Future of Voting Rights"
The conference, co-sponsored by the NYU Law Alumni Association and the Journal of Legislation and Public Policy, took place on Wednesday, November 13, 2013.
Voting is an inherent constitutional right that determines the makeup of our government and the direction of our democracy. Historically, many groups have fought economic, racial, and gender barriers to secure this right. In the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling on Shelby County v. Holder that struck down criteria determining which state and local governments could make changes to voting laws or procedures, many have argued that vast groups voters across the United States are now disenfranchised.
Join this expert panel as they explore the future of voting rights in the United States -- are new regulations required or is the United States finally at a point where the right to vote is guaranteed to all?
