Join the Director of the Constitutional Law Center, Michael W. McConnell for a Jefferson Memorial Lecture on the topic of “Constructing a Republican Executive”.

This lecture will show how the delegates, and especially the Committee of Detail, went about constructing such an executive, and what it means for separation-of-powers law today. As the delegates to the Constitutional Convention gathered in Philadelphia in 1789, there was no experience, anywhere in the world, of a successful republican executive over an extensive nation — one with sufficient authority and independence to make things work on a national scale, but without the risk of becoming a monarch.

Please be advised that this event is only being offered in person at The Bancroft Hotel — 2680 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704. A recording of the lecture will be made available after the event.
