Constitution Day - The Presidency and the Constitution

Panel Discussion

Monday, September 18, 2017 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Constitution Day is federally mandated and commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

What powers does the Constitution invest in the president? According to the Constitution, what is the role of the president? How has the relationship between the presidency and the Constitution changed over time and where might it be headed today?

Today the office and powers of presidency and their relationship to the American Constitution seem as important as ever. Several distinguished panelists will present on thematic approaches including the courts, elections, commander-in-chief powers, and political activism, followed by a discussion with the audience of this critically important topic.
