The Litigated Presidential Election:
How to Prepare for the Unexpected

The presidential election set to take place on November 3rd between President Trump and former Vice President Biden is shaping up to be among the most litigated in history.  There will likely be legal contests before, during and after the election.

What will this mean for the future of our democracy and for our every-day lives, and what lessons can lawyers learn from the high-profile, high-stakes lawsuits and strategies?

Join the Eagleton Institute of Politics and the NJ State Bar Association for a unique afternoon that will examine a unique time in this country’s history. You will hear from a diverse group of respected election experts and lawyers as they analyze the current state of election lawsuits and what is likely to happen pre, during and post-election.
