Constitution Day 2018: The Fight Against Partisan Gerrymandering

Thomas (Tom) Wolf, J.D., is Counsel with the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice. He focuses on the census and redistricting issues. Mr. Wolf regularly participates as an amicus in cases before the United States Supreme Court and advises on strategies for both state and federal litigation. His articles and op-eds on gerrymandering and related topics have appeared in Time, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News, SCOTUSblog, and other outlets.

Prior to joining the Brennan Center, Mr. Wolf was a member of the Supreme Court & Appellate group at Mayer Brown LLP, where his practice focused on constitutional law, federal preemption, and risk management. He began his legal career as a clerk for Senior Judge Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Mr. Wolf is an alumnus of The Yale Law School, where he was Coker Fellow for constitutional law, and Obama for America, where he supported the campaign’s field organizing and political outreach efforts. Mr. Wolf holds advanced degrees in Political Thought & Intellectual History from the University of Cambridge and Urban Development Planning from the Bartlett Faculty of University College London, which he attended as a Marshall Scholar. He graduated summa cum laude with an AB in History from Harvard.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Political Science, Department of Criminal Justice, Department of Sociology and the Division of Student Affairs.

The federal government requires educational institutions to honor Constitution Day, commemorating September 17, 1787, when delegates at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia signed the Constitution of the United States of America.
