Combating Citizens United
The Brennan Center leads the jurisprudential movement to curb the rise of unfettered money in politics post-Citizens United and put a self-governing democracy at the center of our Constitution. This kind of legal scholarship can have a real impact in the academy, in legal practice, and in public debate over the issues.
To start, the Brennan Center released Money, Politics and the Constitution: Beyond Citizens United, the first major book to assess the constitutional way forward. Authors include what the New York Times called “A-list” constitutional scholars: Yale Law Dean Robert Post, NYU Law professors Samuel Issacharoff, Rick Pildes and Burt Neuborne, University of Chicago’s Geoffrey Stone, and the Brennan Center’s Monica Youn.
