George S. Scoville III

Co-Founder, Executive Director, and Treasurer

George Scoville is an attorney at Sims|Funk, PLC in his native Nashville, Tennessee.  He earned his law degree, with honors, from The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, where he was the Editor-in-Chief of Volume 48 The University of Memphis Law Review and a research assistant to Bredesen Professor of Law Steven J. Mulroy, the school’s resident constitutional and election law expert.  As a law student, George published the first contribution to the academic literature on campaign finance law to analyze and critique statutes in all 50 states that attempt to regulate communications and other expenditures that are coordinated between campaigns and outside groups.

Before studying and practicing law, George lived and worked in Washington, D.C. for half a decade, where he earned a master of public policy from the American University School of Public Affairs en route to becoming a highly sought-after communications strategist, serving political and industry issue campaigns.  His practical political experience navigating the quagmire of overlapping, duplicative, and often confusing rules governing a person’s participation in politics, coupled with his unshakeable commitment to constitutional principles, made co-founding Tennesseans for Sensible Election Laws one of the easiest choices of George’s professional life.
