For Tuesday, we'll begin looking at felons and voting. Please read: Michael Goldhaber, The Felon Vote, Nat'l Law Journal (Oct. 24, 2000); Richardson v. Ramirez (U.S. 1974), pp. 433-441; Hunter v. Underwood (U.S. 1985), pp. 441; and Pam Karlan, Convictions and Doubts: Retribution, Representation, and the Debate over Felon Disenfranchisement, 56 Stan. L. Rev. 1147 (2004). The reading not in your casebook is in your supplemental packet.
FYI, here is a copy of the exam I gave in this class in 2006.
