Faithfully Executing The Laws: Internal Legal Constraints On Executive Power, Dawn E. Johnsen Jan 2007

Faithfully Executing The Laws: Internal Legal Constraints On Executive Power, Dawn E. Johnsen

Articles by Maurer Faculty

Since September 11, 2001 the Bush Administration has engaged in a host of controversial counterterrorism actions that threaten civil liberties and even the physical safety of those targeted: enemy combatant designations, extreme interrogation techniques, extraordinary renditions, secret overseas prisons, and warrantless domestic surveillance. To justify otherwise-unlawful policies, President Bush and his lawyers have espoused an extreme view of expansive presidential power during times of war and national emergency. Debate has raged about the details of desirable external checks on presidential excesses, with emphasis appropriately on the U.S. Congress and the courts. Yet an essential internal source of constraint is ...

The Politics Of Planning For Urban Redevelopment: Strategies In The Manipulation Of Public Law, Sheldon J. Plager, Joel F. Handler Jan 1966

The Politics Of Planning For Urban Redevelopment: Strategies In The Manipulation Of Public Law, Sheldon J. Plager, Joel F. Handler

Articles by Maurer Faculty
