Representing A Political Candidate (2014)

4.0 MCLE Credits: 2.0 Skills; 2.0 Professional Practice

For those involved or interested in political campaigns and who may represent political and public figures, this program covers some of the most commonly occurring issues and thorny problems arising under New York’s election laws.

The complexities and minutiae in the law and its processes addressed in this program – getting and staying on the ballot, handling litigation over ballot access, options and legal strategies available on election day, and canvassing of votes and recount litigation – create vast opportunities for inadvertent and substantial errors that can lead to court challenges and greatly affect candidates and their campaigns.

This half-day seminar is a practical hands-on primer that will familiarize you with many of New York’s laws regulating elections in the state and will offer useful tips on how to most appropriately handle challenges and controversies when they do arise.

GETTING AND STAYING ON THE BALLOT – PETITIONS; CONVENTIONS; CERTIFICATIONS
