Join NYCLA's Center for Corporate Governance for an important discussion about the state of voting rights in the United States today. Our panel of experts will discuss such topics as:

 – What are the likely  effects of recent impediments to voting in State statutes? Will voter suppression be a likely consequence? Are all of the State new requirements unreasonable? Under what authority have States imposed voting restrictions?

– Will there be Constitutional challenges to the new State voting restriction laws? How far can the States actually go in restricting their citizens' rights to vote?

 – What role can General Counsel, corporations and businesses play in weighing in on legislation or high profile social issues?

 – Is the conduct of State political officials ethical if the new legislation has a chilling effect on citizens' right to vote?

 – and MORE!!!!
