Piercing the rhetoric of campaign finance reform, The Catholic University Law Review, with the Hudson Institute, presented the Symposium, "Looking Ahead at Campaign Finance Reform: What's Next For the McCain-Feingold Bill? What's Next For the Future of Politics in America?"
Two panels considered the legal and political implications of the controversial McCain-Feingold Bill. Among the panelists were:
Jan Baran - Partner, Wiley Rein & Fielding; former General Counsel, Republican National Committee; former Executive Assistant, Federal Election Commission
Benjamin Ginsberg - Partner, Patton Boggs, LLP; former Chief Counsel, Republican National Committee; former Legal Counsel, National Republican Senatorial Committee
James Portnoy - Special Counsel, Covington & Burling; former General Counsel to the Minority, Committee on Housing Oversight.
These are just a few of the highlights. Any one of these activities at another high-ranking law school would be considered a major event, so we know how fortunate we are to study in law's place of origin. We strive to have no student leave CUA before we have helped him or her gain genuine insight toward their special calling. For this reason, our students are strongly encouraged to immerse themselves in the multi-faceted nature of the law school experience by attending these special law school lectures and conferences.
