Join us on select Sundays:
June 13: President as Commander in Chief, Executive, and Pardons Art. II, sec. II, cls. 1
The President has power over the Army and Navy, the Cabinet, and the power to grant
pardons. What’s the relationship between these powers? Should the President continue
to have to these powers?
Registration opens May 30
July 11: President as Treaty Maker and Appointer-in-Chief Art. II, sec. II, cls. 2-3
The President makes Treaties, but the Senate gives advice on the Treaties. How much
advice is the Senate allowed to give? Is the Treaty Power still useful today?
Registration opens June 27
August 8: The State of the Union & Impeachment Art. II, sec. III & IV
The President is required to give Congress “information from time to time.” Why? Is this
tradition still necessary in the era of the 24-hour news cycle? And how do you hold a President accountable?
Registration opens July 25
