Election Law Update with Rick Esenberg

Please join the Milwaukee Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society on April 5, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. for an event featuring Rick Esenberg, President and General Counsel of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty.

The 2020 election saw substantial controversy over the interpretation and enforcement of election laws both in Wisconsin and nationally.  With the 2022 elections on the horizon, new challenges are being brought and new questions being raised.  Rick Esenberg will provide an overview of the most significant areas of concern and insights on what to expect in the coming months.

Rick Esenberg is the founder and current President and General Counsel of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, a rapidly expanding law and policy organization headquartered in Milwaukee. Under Rick’s leadership, WILL has grown into one of the more active state-based think tanks and litigation centers in the country. Rick is a frequent litigator in state and federal courts and nationally recognized scholar and commentator on constitutional law, particularly the First Amendment’s guarantees of freedom of speech and religion. He is one of the leading experts on the Wisconsin Constitution and a frequent advocate before the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Rick holds a J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, and a B.A., summa cum laude, in political science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In addition to service on the Marquette Faculty, he was formerly a litigation partner at Foley & Lardner and General Counsel of an international manufacturing firm headquartered in Wisconsin. He lives in Mequon Wisconsin with his wife Karen, golden retriever Riley and more books than he can find places for.

Please join us for an election law update.

Lunch will be served.
