2021 Direct Democracy Symposium – Nebraska College of Law

November 13, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm CST


On November 13, the University of Nebraska College of Law will convene a symposium on direct democracy. From the event website: The reason for this symposium is Nebraska’s experience with direct-democracy provisions, found in the Nebraska state constitution. While the main culprit of recent angst is the single-subject rule, this is but a piece of a larger puzzle related to the role of direct-democracy provisions in state government. This symposium will be available remotely via Zoom and in-person at the College of Law. Instructions for connecting remotely will be distributed the week of the symposium.

State Democracy Research Initiative Co-Director Miriam Seifter will join a panel at 8:40am CT to discuss the theory behind direct-democracy provisions and the broad interests at stake. Subsequent panels will discuss the standards and decision-making processes associated with these provisions. For registration and additional details, please visit the symposium website.
