Alumni Weekend 2007—21st Century Democracy: Elections, Media, Politics

Twenty-first Century Democracy was the topic of discussion at the Law School October 12–14 as hundreds of graduates from across the globe gathered for Alumni Weekend. Panel discussions focused on the role of media and technology in democracy and law, separation of powers, the Voting Rights Act, and money and politics. In addition to lively debates, graduates enjoyed time reconnecting with old friends and making new ones during several receptions, dinners, and the Alumni Luncheon at which New York Times Supreme Court Correspondent Linda Greenhouse ’78 MSL received the Yale Law School Association Award of Merit.

Read excerpted quotes from panel discussions.
