The Center for Effective Lawmaking (CEL) is a partnership between Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia, designed to study and promote effective lawmaking across the U.S. state legislatures and in Congress. The CEL scores all members of Congress and most state legislators on their lawmaking effectiveness, and uses those scores to identify the habits of highly effective lawmakers, as well as potential institutional reforms. This session shares many practical insights that participants can use to advance their own lawmaking objectives.

Facilitators: Craig Volden and Alan Wiseman, Co-Directors of the Center for Effective Lawmaking
