Law-election -- Election Law


About Law-election
English (USA)

Welcome to the Election Law mailing list! The ELECTION-LAW list is an Internet Listserv residing at the University of California, Irvine. This list is for general discussion of substantive and pedagogical issues related to election law and the design and reform of electoral institutions. The list managers are Daniel Lowenstein of UCLA Law School and Rick Hasen of UC Irvine School of Law.

The group is a private one, which consists primarily of academics who teach courses or write about questions related to these subjects, and lawyers who practice in related areas. Others also may join, subject to the approval of the list manager.

In addition to providing a forum for discussion of general issues relating to the subject matter, the list is intended to serve as a place where subscribers can discuss ideas they have for scholarship, works in progress, and problems they are encountering in teaching and conducting research.

Members also are encouraged to share information about new books or articles and new judicial, legislative and administrative developments related to election law and the design and reform of electoral institutions.

Subscribers affiliated with organizations that provide web-based or other resources related to election-law are welcome to post a notice of those resources when they start up and once a year thereafter, each August.

Members of the press may subscribe to the listserv and may describe in general terms the substance of discussion on the list, but should not quote posted comments or attribute ideas to specific individuals without the consent of the individuals.

Discussions on the listserv are often contentious, but they are conducted in a civil manner. The proprietors reserve the right to expel or otherwise discipline subscribers whose postings are in their judgment uncivil or otherwise objectionable.

Partial archives for the period before 2011 are available at this link:
