When: Friday, September 14, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Where: Maxwell Auditorium, Maxwell Hall

Description:

Corey Brettschneider is a Professor of Political Science at Brown University. In honor of Constitution Day on September 17th, we have invited Prof. Brettschneider to discuss his new book, "The Oath and The Office: A Guide to the Constitution for Future Presidents." Can the president launch a nuclear attack without congressional approval? Can states legally resist a president’s executive order? Brettschneider dives deep into the U.S. Constitution to answer questions that Americans are asking more than ever before, and breathes new life into the Constitution’s articles and amendments, stressing its key principles and illustrating their relevance to our lives today. A reception will follow, and this lecture is open to the public.
