The MWL CLE Committee is Pleased to Present:
The Right to Vote: Attorneys, Elections, and Facilitating Our Democracy


Attorneys are uniquely positioned to understand election law and have an impact on elections. Join Minnesota Women Lawyers to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which provided women the constitutional right to vote, and gear up for an important election year. This 90-minute CLE program will begin with an overview of the election system in Minnesota, including relevant judicial decisions and legislative actions. Following the overview, this program will highlight the processes in place to ensure a free and fair election and discuss the myths and realities of voter fraud in Minnesota. Finally, this program will share specific opportunities for attorneys to promote and protect the voting system for all Minnesotans including people of color, survivors of domestic violence, and other marginalized groups. Are you ready for the 2020 election?

 

Following the CLE program, join us for a networking reception. Space is limited and registration is required.

Registration is FREE for all MWL members and Mitchell Hamline faculty/students; tickets are $20 for all others.

1.5 Standard CLE credits have been applied for.
