The event is open to the public.
Once a decade, cities and states around the country redraw the districts from which legislators are elected. District boundaries powerfully shape the incentives of candidates and political elites, determining whether and how the many interests that make up a polity will be represented in government. San Francisco’s redistricting process got underway during the fall of 2011 and will be concluded this spring.
A joint event of the Center for State and Local Government Law at UC Hastings and the Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good at the University of San Francisco, Redistricting San Francisco: Assembling the Political Puzzle will bring together political scientists, law professors, historians, redistricting officials, and interest group leaders for a day-long discussion of San Francisco’s redistricting process and what the new maps for supervisor districts should look like.
This activity is approved for a maximum of 5 MCLE credits by the O’Brien Center for Scholarly Publications, a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider.
