America’s Contentious Presidential Elections: A History

On Monday, Oct. 19, the National Constitution Center is hosting “America’s Contentious Presidential Elections: A History.” The event will feature discussion on key controversial and contested elections throughout American history—including 1800, 1860, 1876, and 2000—and what we can learn from them as we approach Election Day.  

Participants include ALI members Edward B. Foley of Ohio State University, Mortiz College of Law and Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, as moderator, along with James Ceaser of the University of Virginia, Robert Lieberman of Johns Hopkins University, and Franita Tolson of the University of Southern California Gould School of Law.
