How Law and Data Can Work Together to End Gerrymandering 

Please join us as we round out another successful year of CLE programming with a very special presentation by Princeton University Professor and Princeton Gerrymandering Project pioneer, Dr. Samuel Wang, speaking on How Law and Data Can Work Together to End Gerrymandering. This program is anticipated to be approved for 1 CLE credit.  As always, a gourmet lunch will be served.

Gerrymandering occurs when voting districts are redrawn to benefit one party over another in elections.  However, election laws and the Consitution are silent on critical issues of representation and districting and the Supreme Court has left the door open as to when extreme gerrymandering is unconstitutional. 

Join us as Professor Wang shares with us how he and his colleagues develop and use mathematical tests that rigorously diagnose unequal opportunity and unfair outcomes in district maps and how they work with lawyers to apply an interdisciplinary approach where mapmaking, statistics, and law come together to fill the current legal void.

The Princeton Gerrymandering Project seeks to bridge the gap between mathematics and the law to achieve fair representation through redistricting reform. 


Come and learn with us about how The Princeton Gerrymandering Project translates math into law, and law into math.
