West LegalEdcenter presents a timely and in-depth audio webcast featuring leading campaign finance experts on the practical effects and the broader impact of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Citizens United v. FEC. The Court's bombshell opinion in that case has eliminated the legal restrictions on independent political advertising by corporations and labor unions, and is triggering a new round of attention to campaign finance laws from the White House to Congress to state and local governments around the country.

Please join our distinguished panel of experts for a discussion of the Court's ruling, its reasoning, and the ripple effects it will have on the political activities of business and labor in the 2010 election cycle and beyond. The panel will be led by Trevor Potter, President of the Campaign Legal Center and long-time counsel to Sen. John McCain. He will be joined by Joseph M. Birkenstock, former Chief Counsel to the Democratic National Committee. Also featured are Michael Toner of Bryan Cave LLP and Scott Thomas of Dickstein Shapiro LLP.
