One-Day Seminar: Executive Power and the Constitution hosted by Caldwell County Schools (Lenoir, NC)

February 17, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 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.

Lunch will be provided at this free program, as well as a certificate for continuing education. All registrants will receive a copy of the reader, on paper, in advance of the program; and digital copies will be available here after early January 2020. Click here to register.
