Legal scholars to debate presidential war powers at Tulane Law Oct. 18-19

October 16, 2013

Legal experts on presidential war powers are scheduled to gather at Tulane Law School Oct. 18-19 to share their perspectives on the decades-old debate over how far an executive can go and what role Congress plays in decisions to use U.S. military force.

The gathering will feature a discussion of Long Wars and the Constitution, a new book by Tulane Law Professor Stephen Griffin, with comments from Professors Jack Balkin of Yale Law School, Martin Lederman of Georgetown and Mariah Zeisberg of the University of Michigan.

Zeisberg’s book, War Powers: The Politics of Constitutional Authority, will be the focus of a separate panel: Professors William Howell from the University of Chicago, Keith Whittington of Princeton and Griffin.

A reception and book signing for Griffin are open to the public at 5-6 p.m. Oct. 18 in Tulane Law School’s Marian Mayer Berkett Multipurpose Room.
