Date/Time :11/7/2013 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM
Location :UCLA School of Law, Room 1337
Organizer :Charlie Sarosy
Description :

In early October the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments for McCutcheon v. FEC, a case which challenges the aggregate limits to campaign contributions over a two-year election cycle. Many believe this case could be the next Citizens United for campaign finance.

At the crossroads of law and public policy, Adam Lioz has worked on and written about campaign finance issues to promote political equality and democratic fairness through safeguarding the right to vote and curbing the influence of big money on the political process. He will discuss McCutcheon and its possible implications, especially in light of the recent oral arguments in the case. Adam is currently counsel for a public policy organization called Demos, and has worked on campaign finance issues at both the state and federal level.
