‘Safeguarding Democracy Project’ at UCLA School of Law

UCLA School of Law has launched the Safeguarding Democracy Project, aimed at ensuring free and fair elections in the United States. Headed by Richard L. Hasen, who recently joined the law faculty of UCLA, the project will promote research, events, and advocacy aimed at ensuring election integrity.
