This monograph consists of an overview of the law of redistricting, a summary of statistical techniques frequently used in redistricting litigation, and a discussion of some of the major case management challenges presented by such cases.

The Center prepared this monograph as a resource for judges assigned cases challenging legislative redistricting plans developed in response to the 2000 census.
