Alan B. Morrison has been litigating issues of public policy for more than forty years. That work began as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Civil Division in the Southern District of New York where he spent almost four years. He then came to Washington where he co-founded the Public Citizen Litigation Group with Ralph Nader and headed it for more than 25 of the 32 years that he spent there.

He is currently Special Counsel for Administrative Reform and Litigation for the Fair Elections Legal Network on a project seeking to assure that all eligible voters are able to vote and have their votes counted in 2008. In the fall, he will be a visiting professor at American University’s Washington College of Law.
