Join ACS for a lunch conversation about the constitutionality of partisan gerrymandering, which is facing a new kind of challenge at the Supreme Court. Last year, a Wisconsin district court struck down the state’s Republican gerrymander of the state assembly map. The court based its decision on the “efficiency gap,” a new metric for measuring partisan gerrymandering devised by Nicholas Stephanopoulos, a law professor at the University of Chicago, and Eric McGhee, a researcher at the Public Policy Institute of California.

What: Conversation between Professors Pam Karlan and Nicholas Stephanopoulos about the efficiency gap and the future of partisan gerrymandering
Monday, May 1st, 12:45-2 p.m.

Where: Stanford Law School, Crown 285

RSVP: Here
