  • Arthur Pearlstein, Foreword: Pretrial Litigation, Dispute Resolution, and the Rarity of Trial, 40 Creighton L. Rev. 651 (2007). This piece is very short.

Welcome to Election Law! This class is jointly offered by the law schools at Ohio State and the University of Iowa. Students from Iowa will participate remotely, via videoconference. Because Iowa's spring semester starts January 13, 2014, our first class will meet on that date.

2. Was Harper correct in its understanding of the Equal Protection Clause to prohibit certain burdens on voting?
 
3. Are all burdens on voting subject to strict scrutiny under Harper? Think about whether its reasoning applies to voting rules -- such as a photo ID requirement -- that may have a disparate impact on poor, minority, or less-educated voters.
