Apr 22, 2014 · 4:30 p.m.– 6:00 p.m. · Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall
Several recent Supreme Court decisions have limited the ability of citizens to regulate money in American politics, resulting in a "campaign finance system" which does not reflect anyone's ideal (including the Supreme Court's), and which increasingly threatens core democratic values.
Trevor Potter, one of the country's best-known and most experienced campaign and election lawyers, is Stephen Colbert's SuperPAC lawyer and a former Federal Election Commission chairman. He currently leads the political law practice of Caplin & Drysdale in Washington, D.C.
