Please join the Texas Federalist Society for a debate regarding President Trump's aggressive use of presidential power and whether such use exceeds the Founders' original designs. In his new book, Defender in Chief, John Yoo (Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law; Co-Faculty Director, Korea Law Center; and Director, Public Law & Policy Program, UC Berkeley School of Law) argues that Trump - despite his populism - has become more often the defender rather than the opponent of the original Constitution. In The Living Presidency, Sai Prakash (James Monroe Distinguished Professor of Law and Paul G. Mahoney Research Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law) counters that Trump, like many modern Presidents, has violated the Constitution's grant of executive power.

The first 50 Texas Law students to register will receive a $10 redemption code for DoorDash to enjoy a meal during the event.
