As the Supreme Court considers the legality of aggregate political contribution limits in McCutcheon v. FEC, the prospect of individuals being able to contribute the maximum individual limit to as many candidates and party committees as they choose—totaling up to several million dollars per election—may be a reality as soon in the 2014 midterm elections. Such a decision would have a significant effect on the competitive landscape for both federal and state-level races, and on other restrictions in current federal election law.

This symposium brings together three nationally-prominent political law practitioners who advise clients in navigating the ever-changing campaign finance landscape and advocate for changes in national policy concerning campaign finance:

Kenneth Gross: Partner, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates; Former Associate General Counsel, Federal Election Commission

Larry Noble: Campaign Finance Lawyer; Former General Counsel, Federal Election Commission

Trevor Potter: President, Campaign Legal Center; Caplin & Drysdale; Lawyer for Stephen Colbert’s SuperPAC; Former Commissioner and Chairman, Federal Election Commission

In the complex arena that is U.S. campaign finance law, this Symposium will explore the practical impact of current trends in political giving jurisprudence and practices.
