01.24.2020

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of foreign meddling in the 2016 presidential election brought to prominence the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), a 1938 law adopted to counter Nazi propaganda in the United States by requiring “agents” of foreign parties to register with the U.S. government.

FARA’s recently raised profile has engendered broad interest in the law and its applicability beyond parties, like lobbyists, traditionally understood to be within FARA’s scope. During the discussion, you will learn:

  • FARA’s mechanics
  • Various areas of ambiguity
  • Recent FARA developments
  • Emerging relevance within the profession
