William and Mary Law School

Symposium to Explore Intersection Between Privacy Law and the Vote; Cutler Lecture Added to Schedule

The William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal and the Election Law Program (ELP) will co-sponsor a symposium on Oct. 22 on Privacy, Democracy and Elections. The event begins at 9 a.m. in Room 124 at the Law School. Admission is free and the public is welcome.

The symposium is designed to bring privacy and election law scholars together to explore the intersection between privacy and the vote. Recent events have added texture to this topic, such as the Supreme Court decision of Doe v. Reed which looked at petition signers' right to privacy in Washington state, looming questions about disclosure in campaign finance after Citizens United, and difficult problems associated with voting technology and privacy.
