Hangley Aronchick shareholders Mark Aronchick and Michele Hangley will participate in an upcoming CLE program based on the 2020 elections in Pennsylvania. The half-day program, entitled “Pennsylvania Elections 2.0: What Did We Learn and Where Do We Go from Here?” will be hosted by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Civil & Equal Rights Committee.

This event will include three panels with panelists from state government, law firms and law schools, and voting rights and public interest organizations.  The first panel will cover the General Election and the issues that arose from the point of view of the Department of State, the counties, and the voters. The second panel will cover the state and federal lawsuits that arose from the election, and the third panel will focus on the legislation that is being proposed as a result of the issues raised by the 2020 General Election.

Mark and Michele led the Hangley Aronchick teams in numerous election litigation matters, both prior to and following the 2020 General Election. Mark represented multiple Pennsylvania Counties against numerous challenges to mail-in voting procedures and voter registration lists in the run-up to the election, and afterward, notably, in federal court after the Trump campaign sued to stop the certification of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes, where he gained national attention in his arguments opposite Rudy Giuliani. Michele represented Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and other members of the administration in challenges to in-person and mail-in voting procedures, as well as in post-election attempts to block certification of the state’s votes based on claims that universal mail-in voting violated the Commonwealth Constitution.

This event will be held virtually on April 30, from 1:30 PM to 5 PM, and is eligible for two substantive and one integrated ethics CLE credit. For more information or to register for this event, please visit the PBI website here.
