Unitary Executive: History and Practice

[We have word of the following symposium.  DRE]

Unitary Executive: History and Practice, Friday, February 17, 2023, Fordham Law School, Costantino Room, 150 West 62nd Street, Second Floor, New York, NY

Live Broadcast via Zoom Webinar.  Register here.
The symposium will feature panels discussing one of “the oldest and most venerable debates” in administrative and constitutional law: whether the President of the United States is a “unitary executive” with unrestricted power to remove and control the actions of executive officers who run administrative agencies, and with insulation of executive power from the oversight or conditions set by Congress and the judiciary.
