Campaign Finance

The Supreme Court's Citizens United decision and its recent McCutcheon ruling allowing more money for campaign contributions have dramatically changed the nature or political campaigns and campaign spending. Enormous amounts of money are now being spent on these campaigns, leading to voter distrust and frustration.

Is this the new norm?

We'll examine the history and nature of campaign finance and learn how changes to the law can reshape the political terrain in 2014 and beyond.

The featured speaker will be Chantell Taylor, senior attorney specializing in campaign finance and government regulations at Hogan Lovells law firm.

Wednesday, May 7, 2014
6:30 - 8:45 p.m.
