Presidential Power

This seminar will focus on the constitutional power of the President and the way that power is, or ought to be, subject to control by Congress or the Judiciary. The course will examine the powers of the President in historical and contemporary contexts, focusing on topics such as presidential control of the executive branch ("the Unitary Executive Theory"), the "protective" power of the presidency, and the role of the presidency in matters of foreign policy and national security.
