In this most unusual and dramatic election year, Robinson Gray attorneys Rob Tyson and Lisle Traywick instructed future attorneys on the complexities of Election Law this summer.

“We covered a wide range of topics,” said Tyson, “including candidate filing, candidate protests and challenges, absentee balloting, and redistricting. The students were very engaged, particularly given the increased attention on elections and election integrity.”

The Election Law course is a new offering at the University of South Carolina School of Law. It was taught online this summer due to COVID-19 restrictions for face-to-face classes at UofSC.

“We hope to teach Election Law again during the academic year and, hopefully, as an in-person class,” said Tyson.

Election law is, of course, one of Rob’s practice areas as a member at Robinson Gray, where he also practices in the areas of business litigation, administrative and regulatory law.

For his part, Lisle focuses his practice on appellate advocacy, election law, government defense, and constitutional litigation. He also handles general civil litigation matters.
