The Legitimacy, Legality, and Legacy of the 45th President of the United States

The Legitimacy, Legality, and Legacy of the 45th President of the United States

 


Volume 45 of Vermont Law Review is hosting its annual Symposium to provide a retrospective look at the 45th Presidential Administration and its lasting impacts on governance in the United States. Over two evenings, panelists will foster debate around the scope and use of executive powers, the legacy the Administration is leaving behind in the field of environmental law, and how its influence ran far beyond what is considered traditional under the separation of powers doctrine. Finally, the esteemed Senator from Montana, Senator Tester, will provide a keynote address, providing a unique insight into lawmaking under the Administration.
