State Ethics:  The Slippery Slope

Please join us June 3 as we discuss State Ethics – The Slippery Slope featuring Carol Laham with Wiley Rein LLP. This will be a fascinating discussion on the ever changing environment of state ethics laws in light of several recent “ethical lapses” of state government officials and lobbyists. 

Carol Laham, a partner in Wiley Rein LLP’s nationally-recognized Election Law & Government Ethics Practice, counsels clients and litigates on compliance with federal, state and local political laws including election laws, the Ethics in Government Act, House and Senate Ethics, state ethics laws, the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 and its state counterparts and the Foreign Agents Registration Act.  She has argued cases before numerous federal and district courts while also providing counsel in cases that involve election law, constitutional law and administrative law disputes before the U.S. Supreme Court.  Ms. Laham was involved in FEC v. Colorado Republican State Committee, a landmark Supreme Court holding that Congress may not limit independent expenditures by political parties, and has litigated many other campaign finance cases before district and appellate courts at the federal and state level.  Ms. Laham also counsels corporations with respect to pay-to-play statutes, regulations and ordinances and with respect to procurement lobbying laws.  Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Laham practiced in the Office of the General Counsel of the Federal Election Commission.  She is a graduate of Wellesley College (Phi Beta Kappa) and of New York University School of Law.

Avoid jail and join us for this conversation featuring Carol Laham.
