“How Can We Safeguard American Democracy?”

Americans are up in arms about elections. Court battles about elections continue to proliferate. And voter confidence continues to plunge. How do we solve these problems which threaten our democracy?

Professor Richard Hasen of the UCLA Law School is the nation’s foremost expert about the law regarding elections and the right to vote. His Op-Eds regularly appear in the Wall Street JournalWashington Post, and New York Times. He served in 2020 as a CNN Election Law Analyst and as an NBC News/MSNBC Election Law Analyst in 2022. He has provided commentary on NPR and PBS. He also directs UCLA Law’s Safeguarding Democracy Project. Please join us for what promises to be a timely lecture at the intersection of law and politics amidst the 2024 Presidential race.

Since its inception in 1974, the Peck Dinner has provided a wonderful opportunity for students interested in the law to engage not only with the Senior Peck Medalist, but also with Wabash alumni lawyers and other members of the legal community. Help us celebrate 50 years of recognizing excellence in the law through the Peck Medals at Wabash.
