Law of Politics and Representation Seminar
This seminar will examine the varying approaches to the regulation of contacts between the public and elected officials. The seminar will review the laws that govern lobbying, political and policy communications with government officials and the public, government ethics laws and rules, restrictions on the use of corporate and labor facilities in politics, and special rules applicable to the activities of foreign agents in the United States. We will discuss the justifications for, and effectiveness of these rules, as well as what limits exist on the ability of government to regulate contacts between the public and its elected officials.
