On November 5, at noon, the UNC Poverty Center, the American Constitution Society and the Carolina Law chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union will host a discussion on the United States Supreme Court’s upcoming case, McCutcheon v. FEC. McCutcheon, exploring whether the aggregate limit on contributions to federal candidates and parties is constitutional, may be the Court’s most significant campaign reform decision since Citizens United. Two of the nation’s leading experts on election law and the first amendment will speak:
