Voting Rights Litigation Training Chicago Agenda
On May 7, 2015, the Voting Rights Institute, a joint project of the Campaign Legal Center and American Constitution Society (ACS), will conduct the next voting rights training session in Chicago, Illinois. The ongoing Institute training sessions are helping to help meet the critical need for a new generation of voting rights lawyers, experts, and community activists. At the session, being held at the Chicago offices of Jenner & Block, practitioners and law students will learn the ‘ins and outs’ of protecting the right to vote through the enforcement of voting rights laws. A particular focus of the training will be cases brought to enforce Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. The training program will feature a panel of instructors with decades of experience in the field of voting rights.
