11.01.2013

Partner Laurence D. Laufer,  Director of the firm’s Corporate Political Activity Law Practice Group, has published an article in Seton Hall Law Review entitled Picture This: Campaign Finance Law and the Question of Values,” 43 Seton Hall L. Rev. 1209 (2013). The piece provides a thumbnail sketch of federal law as it exists today; catalogues predominant critiques of significant components of current law, taking note of commonly suggested avenues for reform; and poses an exercise for identifying common values that should be served by campaign finance laws. Mr. Laufer asks the reader to “think of a blank canvas and try to contemplate the values the American public thinks campaign finance laws should serve in a democratic political system.” The article was picked by Rick Hasen's Election Law Blog.
