Dan Tokaji and I are thrilled to announce that University of Chicago’s Nick Stephanopoulous will be coming on as co-author to the 6th edition of Election Law–Cases and Materials (5th edition (2012)—Lowenstein, Hasen, Tokaji), which will be out in time for the fall classes. Dan Lowenstein, while no longer working on editions of the book since his retirement, says he is delighted about the addition of Nick to the book and strengths Nick will bring to the project. Nick also joins the roster of ELB contributors, chiming in from time to time.
Nick’s scholarly work is at the intersection of law and empirical political science, bringing together rigorous data analysis and normative insights on election law issues issues from partisan gerrymandering to campaign finance to voting rights. He is the perfect addition to a book whose strengths have always been found at this intersection. Nick also asks the good, tough questions, and his inquisitiveness will help us to strengthen and update key parts of the casebook.
We have many exciting plans for the new edition, but more about that in coming months.
Welcome aboard, Nick!
