Feb. 1: Presidential Power in 2017
Presidential transitions raise a host of important questions. Among them, how much power does a president have? In what ways will an incoming president exercise that power? And how, if at all, can individuals participate in the political process once the election is over? The University of Washington School of Law invites members of the public to join a panel of scholars to discuss the scope, and limits, of presidential power in modern politics. Topics include how President Trump plans to exercise power in his own administration and how members of the public can remain engaged, beyond the ballot box, in the political process. Read about the event here.
