Sam Hirsch Presents at NCSL’s Online Redistricting Seminar

Partner Sam Hirsch is speaking in several sessions during the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Online Redistricting Seminar from January 6-8.

On January 7, Mr. Hirsch will present on a virtual panel called “Audit the Class,” during which lawyers and academics will discuss their latest research related to redistricting. Mr. Hirsch will present on findings from an article he co-authored showing that using data from general elections and primaries to generate detailed maps can provide a sophisticated analysis of minority electoral opportunities and could help combat the historic underrepresentation of minority voters.  

Mr. Hirsch will also join the conference’s daily “Ask the Experts” sessions where attendees can interact directly with the presenters to ask questions and for more information.
