Please join the Political Theory Colloquium as they host Vikram Amar, Professor of Law at UC Davis, for a presentation about his recent research.

This Essay thoroughly analyzes the 2023 U.S. Supreme Court Moore v. Harper decision, examines how the ruling reflects (laudable) doctrinal movement by the various Justices, and explains why the Court’s reservation of federal judicial power to review state court decisions under the Elections Clause, when state courts go beyond “ordinary judicial review,” does not open the door to expansive federal judicial oversight.

Vikram Amar is a Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of California, Davis. Amar is one of the most eminent and frequently cited authorities in constitutional law, federal courts, and civil procedure.
