Panel Discussion on McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, George Washington University Law School Political Law Society

Jenner & Block Partner Jessica Ring Amunson will speak at a program of the George Washington University Law School Political Law Society on October 7.  The panel discussion will explore McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, which the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear on October 8.  The case regards whether the biennial limit on contributions to non-candidate committees is constitutional.  Jessica was on a firm team that filed an amicus brief in the matter on behalf of 85 Democratic members of Congress, arguing that the Court should uphold aggregate campaign contribution limits and continue to defer to Congress on the need for such limits.  The event will be held at the law school starting at 6 p.m.

Jessica, a member of the Appellate and Supreme Court Practice, concentrates in appellate and Supreme Court matters.  She has significant experience briefing and arguing matters before federal and state appellate courts and has filed numerous merits and amicus briefs with the Court.
