Last week, a team of W&M law students enjoyed tremendous success in Virginia’s Redistricting Competition. Because of their success in the competition, the W&M team has been asked by the Bipartisan Governor’s Commission to assist them in drawing its own maps to submit to the Virginia Assembly. The Commission was so impressed with the W&M team’s maps that they requested at least two students from the team work with them as the Commission draws its own maps to submit to the Assembly. The last Commission meeting is on Wednesday, so it is crunch time for the Commission to come up with a map they believe the Assembly should adopt. W&M law students began assisting the Commission on Thursday and will continue to help until the Commission’s last meeting on Wednesday.
In addition, the W&M Law Redistricting Team has been in the press a lot lately. See below for all of the press coverage. Well done team!
