The Election Law Program, a joint project of the National Center for State Courts and William & Mary Law School, will host its annual Election Law Symposium on the topic of Election Data Security. This year’s Symposium will kick off with a “war game” simulating an appellate argument that takes place in the fictional state of “Flichigan.” The moot tests the interplay of state and federal laws and constitutional provisions when it comes to securing our elections. Participants will then debrief the moot argument and discuss how law impacts state and federal efforts to protect election security.
The symposium will be held at the William & Mary Law School in room 119. Registration is free and open to the public. The symposium has traditionally been approved for 2 CLE credit hours. A reception will follow the symposium conclusion.
