“It’s Not Rigged!  A Primer on Election Law”

The Honorable Daniel K. McCarthy and the Honorable Douglas G. Reichley

Team IV, led by Zachary J. Cohen, Esquire,


The first program, September 21st, is open to all.  Enjoy dinner with colleagues at 5:30 PM, learn and be entertained during the program starting at 6:00 PM and be on your way home by 7:00 PM.  Explore various state, federal, and local election laws, the history and operation of the electoral college and claims that the process is rigged, candidacy eligibility and challenges ranging from heated local contests up through the highest office, redistricting, voting, to the impact of the First Amendment on candidate speech and campaign contributions.

There are many benefits when you join the Barristers’ Inn.   It is a fantastic way for members of the Bar to connect and socialize with members of the Bench and Bar while earning up to an optional 8 CLE credits from programs taught by the Bench and many of the Lehigh Valley’s top lawyers.   It is truly a one-of-a-kind organization here in the Lehigh Valley.


For more information, please contact Barristers’ Inn President, Michele A. Varricchio.   You may contact her by email at


There will be a complete list of programs for the year to follow.
