Professor Peter Shane pens op-ed in The Regulatory Review discussing Presidential Authority

March 29, 2021 | Media News

An expert in the area of constitutional law, Professor Peter Shane recently penned an op-ed in The Regulatory Review titled, “Lessons in Presidential Authority.”

“The body of presidential initiatives emerging so quickly from the Biden White House is instructive, however, about more than just the ambitions of one particular President. These executive initiatives also provide important clues as to both the reach and limitations of presidential power. Such lessons emerge yet more pointedly when President Biden’s opening flurry of actions is viewed in tandem with the closing burst from President Donald J. Trump.

“Looking at President Biden’s first week against the backdrop of President Trump’s last actually points to some important lessons about the powers and frustrations of the contemporary presidency.”
