La Follette School Student Association
Professor Nils Ringe
October 13, 2010
La Follette Conference Room
Professor Ringe of the Political Science Department will speak briefly about his research on legislative member organizations before opening the floor for discussion. Examples of LMOs include caucuses in the US Congress, such as the Congressional Black Caucus or the Alzheimer’s Caucus. These voluntary, informal, and mostly cross-partisan groups also exist in other legislatures. Professor Ringe’s research includes determining what their functions are in the legislative process.
