Election Year 2020: Understanding the Complex Rules Regulating Political Participation *In-person at D.C. Bar*

February 19, 2020
Credits: 3.0 Credit Hours

Description: Join us for the return of this timely and informative class.  Any lawyer who is politically active or who counsels clients that engage in political activity needs to be aware of the complex web of rules regulating political participation.  Whether it is a corporation that wants to let a candidate use their conference room for a meeting, or an executive who wants to raise money for a candidate or make a financial contribution to their favorite congressman, political action committee (PAC) or other political organization, the FEC, IRS, FCC, SEC, MSRB and state and local authorities all have rules which impact such activities.
Attendees will learn the regulations governing contributions of money and other resources to political organizations and candidates.  They will learn the difference between Super PACs, PACs, party committees, 501(c)(4) organizations, and candidate committees at all levels.  Participants will also learn to spot many basic issues that can arise for clients planning to undertake political activity.
