About

A moderated post‐​election conversation on the role of the presidency and executive power featuring Constitutional scholars Caroline Fredrickson, senior fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice and visiting Georgetown law professor, and Gene Healy, vice president at the Cato Institute.

Caroline Fredrickson served as the president of the American Constitution Society from 2009 to 2019. She is a spokesperson on issues such as civil and human rights, the importance of the courts in America, rule of law, and separation of powers. Gene Healy’s research interests include executive power and the role of the presidency as well as federalism and overcriminalization. He is the author of Indispensable Remedy: The Broad Scope of the Constitution’s Impeachment Power and The Cult of the Presidency: America’s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power.

Please join Caroline and Gene for a thought‐​provoking and timely conversation on presidential power and prospects for potential reform in a new administration.
