Electoral Hardball from Burr to Bush
The Helen and Robert Appel Series on Presidential Elections
Featuring: Akhil Reed Amar, Pamela S. Karlan

Law professors Akhil Reed Amar and Pamela S. Karlan discuss the legal and historical questions underlying famously contested American elections including the 1800–01 election—which pivoted in part on Aaron Burr’s aggressive politicking on the streets of Manhattan—and the wild election of 2000, culminating in the Bush v. Gore case.

Akhil Reed Amar is Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University and a trustee of the New-York Historical Society.

Pamela S. Karlan, one of the nation’s leading experts on voting and the political process, is Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Professor of Public Interest Law at Stanford Law School and co-director of the school’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, where students litigate live cases before the Court.
