In the fifth session of the American Constitution Society’s webcast series, “What the Constitution Means and How to Interpret It,” University of Chicago law professor Aziz Huq will consider the concept of separation of powers.
During a 30-minute live-streamed discussion, Huq will address presidential powers during wartime, and how the scope of executive power has changed since 9/11. Following a 15-minute presentation, Huq will take questions for 15 minutes.
Other webcasts in the nine-part series on understanding the Constitution will focus on democracy, criminal justice and liberty. Each session, led by a preeminent scholar, mirrors a chapter in the ACS-published book, Keeping Faith with the Constitution, by Pamela Karlan, Goodwin Liu and Christopher H. Schroeder.
Lawyers, law students and non-lawyers are encouraged to participate and interact with questions, tweets and Facebook comments. If you are on Twitter, please join ACS both during and after tomorrow’s session at the hashtag #ACSclass.
The Oct. 19 webcast will occur at 3 p.m. EDT and is free and open to everyone. To see the full schedule, accompanying readings and audio recordings of previous webcasts, visit the web page for “What the Constitution Means and How to Interpret It.”
