Defining the legal scope of presidential power
If you’ve been looking for a new Schoolhouse Rock episode on modern presidential power, without the musical and cartoon characteristics, look no further. The early days of the Trump administration are ripe with questions of the reach and limitations of the powers granted to the President of the United States.
This panel discussion among professors at the University of Washington School of Law clarifies many of those questions.
The participants include:
- Kellye Testy, Dean of UW School of Law
- Robert Anderson, Environmental & Natural Resource Law
- Angélica Cházaro, Immigration Law
- Trevor Gardner, Criminal Law
- Sallie Thieme Sanford, Health Care Law
- Kathryn Watts, Administrative Law & Presidential Power
- Lisa Manheim, Election Law, moderator
The UW School of Law and Town Hall Seattle hosted this event, “Presidential Power in 2017,” on February 1. Jennie Cecil Moore recorded the discussion.
