The Howard Law Journal organizes the annual Wiley A. Branton Symposium which allows the Howard and surrounding community to discuss important issues. This year's Symposium entitled “We the People? Internal and External Challenges to the American Electoral Process,” will be held on Thursday, October 11th, 2018 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
We are honored to feature noted scholar Guy-Uriel Charles, founding director of the Duke Law Center on Law, Race and Politics, as our keynote speaker.
Two panels of distinguished speakers will further explore our topic. The morning panel will discuss the internal influences, such as voter suppression laws and gerrymandering, on our election process while the afternoon panel will explore the external influences, such as foreign interference and social media, on our electoral process.
The Symposium will be held in the Moot Court Room at:
Howard University Law School
We are located at 2900 Van Ness Street NW, Washington, DC.
