Conducting National Convention Activities

1h 1m

Created on April 07, 2016



The national political conventions this summer – at which the Republican and Democratic parties will nominate their candidates for president – provide excellent opportunities for businesses and organizations to show their support for the political parties. With many federal, state, and local officeholders in attendance, the conventions are also an opportune time to network with numerous government officials.

However, participation in the national political conventions can require compliance with both campaign finance and government ethics laws at the federal, state, and local levels. This course, taught by Caleb Burns, partner, and Rob Walker, of counsel, at Wiley Rein LLP in Washington, D.C., explore those compliance requirements. Both Caleb and Rob have decades of combined experience helping organizations navigate the national political conventions and other activities that implicate campaign finance, lobbying, and government ethics laws.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Identify the different types of legal regulation that can apply in the national political convention context

II.    Grasp how the legal prohibitions and allowances operate

III.   Apply those legal prohibitions and allowances to specific facts and scenarios
