Georgia Law Review Symposium: Walking the Line: Modern Gerrymandering & Partisanship
Organized by the Georgia Law Review, the Walking the Line: Modern Gerrymandering & Partisanship conference will explore the current and future state of redistricting. The event will feature a diverse set of voices on topics at the intersection of election law, political science and politics, which is driven by the U.S. Supreme Court’s pending docket. Panel topics will include the Voting Rights Act of 1965, deriving a constitutional test for partisan gerrymandering, and redistricting implications in Georgia. Legal and political science scholars as well as practitioners will serve as panelists. The keynote speaker will be Nicholas Stephanopoulos, the Fried Research Scholar at the University of Chicago Law School. Stephanopoulos is a plaintiff’s attorney on the case Gill v. Whitford, which had oral arguments in front of the U.S. Supreme Court during October 2017.
