On February 8, 2013, Willamette University College of Law will be hosting a conference on Campaign Finance, entitled "Campaign Finance and the 2012 Election." Here is a brief description:
Willamette University’s Center for Constitutional Government is pleased
to sponsor a conference to assess the role of money in the 2012 elections
and to investigate what changes, if any, should be made to federal and state
campaign finance laws. Among the topics to be discussed is the impact of
so-called “Super PACs,” the role of money in judicial elections, the viability
of public financing after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Arizona Free
Enterprise v. Bennett, and the efficacy of Oregon’s “disclosure only” system
of regulating contributions to political campaigns for state office. With the
amount of money spent in political campaigns having hit a historic high,
the conference promises to be both timely and valuable for attorneys, elected
officials and concerned citizens alike.
