The Presidency — Boston

Boston University School of Law presents The Role of the President in the 21st Century, Oct. 12-13, 2007. The conference

will address many of the fundamental legal and political controversies surrounding the American executive, including the constitutional sources and scope of presidential power and the historical and contemporary significance of the presidency in American politics. We will also offer a comparative perspective by investigating how other countries and American states grapple with the problems of defining, empowering, and
confining the chief executive. Participants will include distinguished figures from law faculties, other academic disciplines and public service.
