A panel of activists, academics and litigators discussed various approaches to redistricting reform, with a particular focus on the current efforts in Virginia to set up a less-partisan redistricting commission. The panel featured Brian Cannon, executive director at OneVirginia2021; Henry Chambers ’91, professor at the University of Richmond School of Law; Mark Gaber, director of trial litigation at the Campaign Legal Center; and Rebecca Green, professor at William & Mary Law School. The panel was moderated by UVA Law professor A. E. Dick Howard ’61. The event was part of the symposium “Elections: Where Law & Politics Intersect,” hosted by UVA Law’s Journal of Law & Politics.
