Quote of the Day - I'm conducting a seminar on multiple personality disorders, and it takes me forever to fill out the name tags.
Occasionally MIPTC gets requests to publicize legal-related events. Here's one you might be interested in from The Yale Law Journal.
From March 24-26, 2006, The Yale Law Journal will be hosting a symposium on executive power titled "The Most Dangerous Branch? Mayors, Governors, Presidents, and The Rule of Law." It will cover a wide range of topics, from the scope of the President's war-conducting powers to mechanisms for limiting the reach of state attorneys general to mayoral attempts to act as independent constitutional interpreters. Through a comparison of executives at multiple levels of government, the symposium will attempt to better understand the nature of the executive role.
Participants will include: Professor John Yoo, the influential (and controversial) former Bush Administration attorney; Professor Neal Katyal, who will be arguing Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, this term's most anticipated Supreme Court case; Dean Elena Kagan of the Harvard Law School; and Dean Harold Koh of the Yale Law School.
The discussions should be lively and timely, given the increasing public interest in the limits of executive power and the wisdom of the unitary executive.
The Yale Law Journal hopes that you will help them spread the word by letting your friends know about the seminar. If you would like to register for the conference or to obtain further information, then send an email to The Yale Law Review at firstname.lastname@example.org.
