February 1, 2023  |  By: Angelo J. Genova, Esq.

Firm Chairman and Co-Founder, Angelo J. Genova, Esq., will participate on the Litigation Strategies Panel for the 2023 Seton Hall Legislative Journal Symposium "Ballots and Democracy: A New Scholarly Agenda" on February 24th. 

Mr. Genova's panel "Litigation Strategies" will "examine the ongoing challenges to New Jersey’s “county line” ballot system, assessing whether that system is constitutional." Mr. Genova and his co-panelists will "discuss the legal theories that have been advanced to challenge the ballot bracketing system in New Jersey and how these challenges have historically played out in the courts."

Program Description

This Symposium will focus on the relationship between election law and democracy. The Symposium will consider more deeply ballot design, ballot bracketing systems, the “Australian ballot,” controversies with the ballot, the history of ballots in the United States, the empirical effects of ballot design, litigation strategies to improve the ballot, and ways in which society and voters can become educated on ballot issues. Ballot design has a significant impact on people’s votes and this Symposium seeks to expose the public to those problems, particularly as they affect New Jersey. The Symposium is intended to bring together law students, law faculty, attorneys, scholars, and judges from around the country to discuss the future of election law and ballot design. All attorneys will receive CLE credit. Structurally, the Symposium will have four panels each approximately 75-80 minutes. Election law experts from across the country will sit on each panel as moderators from Seton Hall Law guide the conversation. Except for parking, admission to the Symposium is free, and there will be a complimentary breakfast, lunch, and cocktail reception following the event.
