This seminar gives students the opportunity to engage with leading public law scholars from Berkeley and other schools. This year, the seminar will focus on separation of powers, especially the scope of presidential power. This is an area of ferment on the Supreme Court and among scholars. It was also a focus of intense public debate during the Trump Administration. The speakers include Professors Jonathan Gould, Bertrall Ross, Amanda Tyler, and John Yoo from our own faculty. The outside speakers include Gillian Metzger (Columbia), Josh Chafetz (Cornell), Eloise Pasachoff (Georgetown), Kristin Hickman (Minnesota), John Harrison (Virginia), J.D. Mortenson (Michigan), and Saikrishna Prakash (Virginia). Students are expected to read the papers in advance and to participate in a discussion with the author. Grades will be based on four brief response papers and on class participation.

Exam Notes: (None) Class requires a series of papers, assignments, or presentations throughout the semester
