On Monday, 26 May 2014, Dr. Maciej Turek from Jagiellonian University in Krakow gave a talk on campaign finance and freedom of speech in the United States.

Several students joined to welcome Dr. Turek and listen to his interesting findings.

Dr. Turek especially focused on how campagin finance has changed and peaked throughout the history of the United States. Accordingly, he expanded on the legal implications of financial power qua means to amplify the significance of a single vote.

In this context, Dr. Turek also touched upon several Supreme Court decisions on freedom of speech and voting rights (especially McCutcheon v. FEC).

Dr. Turek will continue his talk series today, 27 May 2014, and discuss Polish-American relations and the crisis in the ukraine.
