One-Day Seminar: The President, Executive Power, and the Constitution hosted by: ESC Region 4 (Houston, TX)

Thu, Apr 6, 9:00 am to 3:15 pm

Explore the constitutional powers, legal authority, and evolution of the ‘soft power’ of the president from the Founding through the Progressive Era. Participants will read and discuss documents that help explain how the Founders tried to translate the ideals of the Revolution into a form and system of government that would empower, yet restrain the Executive, as well as how interpretations of those powers have changed over time, especially in the face of crisis.

Discussion Leader: Dr. Jeremy Bailey, Professor of Political Science at the University of Houston
