King & Spalding represented the Trump re-election campaign in a lawsuit that sought to prevent North Carolina election officials from honoring the state’s new rules on mail-in ballots.
For this work, King & Spalding faced protests organized by the People’s Parity Project, a national organization of law students and attorneys critical of corporate law practice that, in their view, damages the public interest.
“Protecting the integrity of the legal profession is tied up with protecting the integrity of our government,” said Molly Coleman, the group’s executive director. “We had law students approaching us saying, ‘We don’t think it’s right to go and work for a firm that’s trying to undermine our democracy in this way.’”
