ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the selection of Election Law as a primitive and well-suited choice for academic curriculum in the law-schools of the U.S. It informs that Election Law is a mixture of two things including constitutional law and political science, and also informs about the benefits of the interdisciplinary features of the subject in terms of career and scholarships. It suggests that the time factor is the only drawback in providing systematic training in social science methods.
