The Federalist Society welcomes you to join us for a debate between Mr. J. Christian Adams from the Election Law Center and Professor Atiba Ellis, L '00 from the West Virginia University College of Law for a debate on Voter Identification Laws. As more states pass such laws understanding this topic is becoming increasingly important. Mr. Adams is an election lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice and a columnist for PJmedia.com. Professor Ellis focuses his research and writing on the law of democracy with a specific interest in voting rights law, and the intersection of democratic theory with race, class, and other critical legal perspectives. Co-sponsored by the Program in Public Law.
