Founded in 2006, the Election Law Society is a multi-partisan student organization dedicated to studying the legal issues raised through the American electoral process. While talk of voter fraud and campaign finance reform keeps our attention these days, we should remember that contested elections, gerrymandering and political mudslinging are American electoral traditions going back for centuries.
We are here to help law students better understand election law issues through an open and honest dialogue about their origins and impacts.

The Election Law Society is the student division of William & Mary Law School's Election Law Program. The Election Law Program is a joint venture of the National Center for State Courts and the Law School that seeks to provide practical assistance to state court judges in the United States who are called upon to resolve difficult election law disputes.
