This Thursday, I will be on a panel on executive power at the upcoming Federalist Society 10th Annual Faculty Conference in New York City. The other panelists will be Harvard political theorist Harvey Mansfield, Sandy Levinson of the University of Texas (and the Balkinization blog), and my George Mason colleague Neomi Rao. I anticipate that, on this issue, I will have more points of agreement with Sandy than with Neomi and Professor Mansfield, which is an interesting role reversal. Some of my reservations about unfettered wartime executive power are discussed in this post.
As usual, the Fed Soc conference scheduled to coincide with the annual AALS conference. This panel will be held at 6:30 PM at the Parker Meridien Hotel, 118 W. 57th St., in the Tansa Room.
