Professor Rick Hasen, professor of law and director of the Safeguarding Democracy Project at UCLA Law, is one of the most prominent election scholars in the country.
In his talk, “Safeguarding American Democracy,” Prof. Hasen will discuss the 2020 election and how it still reverberates in American politics, raising the risk that U.S. election results could be subverted by illegal action. Some encouraging signs came in the 2022 midterms, with the defeat of many election denier candidates in swing states. Have the risks to American democracy diminished, or are free and fair elections still in danger?
This lecture is part of the College of Law’s Law & Democracy Series and has been approved for 1.0 continuing legal education credit in Nebraska.
Prof. Hasen will join us via Zoom. You are welcome to join via Zoom or watch the livestream at Nebraska Law.
