On Wednesday July 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. central time, the National Center for State Courts Center for Judicial Ethics is presenting a free webinar on Williams-Yulee v. The Florida Bar and the future of the judicial canons. The U.S. Supreme Court’s 2002 decision in Republican Party of Minnesota v. White spawned numerous challenges to restrictions on the campaign and political conduct of judges and judicial candidates. In April, the Court weighed in again, upholding the prohibition on personal solicitation of campaign contributions in Williams-Yulee v. Florida Bar. This webinar will review the post-White case-law in light of Williams-Yulee, including the challenge in Wolfson v. Concannon pending in the 9th Circuit, and discuss the future of the rules. Faculty: Leslie W. Abramson, Professor of Law, Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, University of Louisville • Matthew Menendez, Counsel, Brennan Center for Justice Democracy Program, New York University School of Law • Cynthia Gray, Director, Center for Judicial Ethics, National Center for State Courts.
