Professor Schwinn clarified the potential impacts of recent Supreme Court decisions that will likely make it harder to challenge discriminatory voting laws in court and provided concrete suggestions for actions we can take to support voting rights. A frequent commenter on issues related to constitutional law and human rights, Schwinn serves as editor of the American Constitution Society Supreme Court Review, an annual publication reviewing cases and issues at the Supreme Court. He serves on the Board of Advisors for the Chicago Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society.
