While the constant crossfire of partisan politics dominates the headlines, a new community of voters is struggling for recognition. These are America’s independent voters, 44 percent of the electorate but dramatically underrepresented at every stage of the political process. Who are these voters? Can they transform the way we do politics?

Jacqueline Salit is the president of Independent Voting, a national strategy and organizing center for independent voters. The author of "Independents Rising" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), Salit teamed up with ASU’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy and the University of Southern California Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy in 2017 to examine independent voters in “Gamechangers?: Independent Voters May Rewrite the Political Playbook.”

Join ASU Law for a CLE and tasting of champagnes and sparkling wines. Tasting to include Piper Heidsieck 2002 Vintage Brut, Billecart-Salmon Rose, Ruinart and Nyetimber.

In the world of sparkling wines, most of the attention is focused on Champagne and on a select few brands with Champagne. The goal of this CLE is to educate not only your mind but also your palette. To that end, we will be tasting six different wines, some from the top Champagne houses and others from outside France.

Piper Heidsieck (founded in 1785) has long been one of Champagne’s top producers. We will be tasting the exceptional 2002 vintage Piper Heidsieck Cuvee Rare next to the very good non-vintage Piper Heidsieck. We will also be tasting a blanc-de-blanc by Ruinart, which lays claim to being the first champagne house (founded in 1729), as well as the always-pleasing Billecart-Salmon brut ros (Billecart-Salmon is a relative newcomer, having been founded in 1818).

Finally, we will leave France and try two non-French wines. The first is a hard-to-find Nyetimber Classic Cuvee, a wonderful sparkling wine from England. You may not know that the English claim to have invented champagne. We abjure you to withhold judgement until you try it. The second is a classic California sparkling wine.

These different wines illustrate the wide range available, and we hope that you will come away not only well educated but also with a new favorite.

The State Bar of Arizona does not approve or accredit CLE activities for the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education requirement. This activity may qualify for up to 1.0 hours toward your annual CLE requirement for the State Bar of Arizona, including 0.0 hour(s) of professional responsibility.

All law students are invited to join us to learn more about the Truman Young Fellowship for 2019–20. Truman R. Young Jr. was an Air Force Academy graduate and decorated combat pilot selected to participate in a series of internships sponsored by the State Bar of Arizona. These internships were designed to encourage highly qualified and motivated law students to become career prosecutors. During his internships and subsequent career as a prosecutor, Young exemplified the qualities that the public expects of its advocates. The fellowship is designed to annually offer one third-year law student the opportunity to participate in the type of internship program Young found so rewarding. The program is sponsored by the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys’ Advisory Council and administered by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.

Paul Spruhan, assistant attorney general for the Ligitation and Employment Unit of the Navajo Nation Department of Justice, will present a lecture, "The Role of the Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood in Defining Native American Legal Identity."

Spruhan will talk about his essay which addresses the Certificate of Indian or Alaska Native Blood or “CDIB,” a document that proves an individual’s quantum of Native American blood. The certificate is a federal document issued by the Bureau of Indian Affairs or by tribal nations through a “638” self-determination contract, but without published regulations or even clear written guidelines. His essay discusses its mysterious origins, its primary purpose and its role in defining Native American legal identity. It also suggests some provisions to be included in final regulations, should the Bureau of Indian Affairs revive its attempt to publish certificate regulations.

He received his Bachelor of Arts in 1995 and his Master of Arts in 1996 from the University of Chicago. He received his Juris Doctor in 2000 from the University of New Mexico. He graduated Order of the Coif and received an Indian law certificate. He and his wife, Bidtah Becker, have two children and live in Fort Defiance, Arizona.
