Tabatha Abu El-Haj

February 16, 2016

Professor Tabatha Abu El-Haj will take part in a discussion of the role of big money in the U.S. political system sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and the Democracy Law Project at Penn Law on Feb. 18.

The discussion will explore the changed landscape in the 40 years since the U.S. Supreme Court in Buckley v. Valeo rejected political equality as a compelling government interest for limiting money in politics.

A constitutional scholar, Abu El-Haj will join Professor Rick Hasen of the University of California-Irvine, author of “Plutocrats United,” Jesus Gonzalez, the co-executive director of Churches United for Fair Housing of Brooklyn, N.Y. and Adam Lioz, counsel and senior adviser for policy and outreach at Demos in Washington, D.C.
