NH law school to hold conference on SCOTUS ruling

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The University of New Hampshire School of Law will hold a panel discussion to mark the fourth anniversary of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that opened the way for unlimited independent financing of political advertising campaigns.

Titled, "Can the Corruption of Congress Be Cured?" the discussion will be held at from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire School of Law in Concord.

Panelists include former Wisconsin Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Americans for Campaign Reform and Maryland Democratic Congressman John Sarbanes, author of the Government by the People Act.

Also on the panel is Harvard Law School professor Lawrence Lessig, founder of the New Hampshire Rebellion, who is leading a march across the Granite State to raise awareness of the need for reforms to end to what he says is the system of corruption in Washington.

The 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision lifted the limits on donations by labor unions and social welfare groups, allowing them to raise large sums beyond the limits that apply to candidates' campaigns and traditional party committees.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Cenk Uygar, host of the online news show "The Young Turks.

The event is free to the public but seating is limited.
