About the Political Law Studies Initiative
Political law—which includes campaign finance, redistricting, voting rights, and election administration—is an evolving and vibrant field. Washington, DC is home to more lawyers who create, interpret, enforce, and practice political law than any other city in the country.
GW’s Political Law Studies Initiative capitalizes on the Law School’s unique location, faculty, courses, alumni, and students to provide an intensive curriculum for studying political law. The initiative also provides a neutral venue for government officials, practitioners, policy advocates, law students, and scholars to discuss ideas, develop the political law field, and create bipartisan professional networks.
The initiative is directed by Professor Spencer Overton.
