The history of campaign finance law dates back to when President Theodore Roosevelt signed into law the 1907 Tillman Act, which was considered to be the first major campaign finance law, one that barred corporations and national banks from making contributions to federal election campaigns. Current laws on the topic include the Federal Election Campaign Act Amendments of 1974 and Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, multiple Federal Election Commission regulations, and court cases such as Citizens United v. FEC and McCutcheon v. FEC.
Campaign Finance Law is the first and only resource of its kind. Learn to decipher the difference between election law and campaign finance law. Dive into primary sources (including federal and state statutes and regulations), as well as secondary sources that investigate the nitty-gritty of campaign finance requirements, violations, and limitations. This timely and relevant guide provides an invaluable tool and resource for lawyers, campaign workers, election officials, and the general public interested in the topic.
