The Fordham Law Review is sponsoring a symposium on presidential succession. The purpose of the symposium is to elucidate gaps and ambiguities in presidential succession, and to situate these issues in a broader context through analysis of constitutional interpretation, the Electoral College, presidential administration, and transparency in government. The symposium will be divided into three panel discussions:

  • Interpreting Ambiguities in Current Constitutional
  • Arrangements;
  • Gaps in the Electoral, Transition &Confirmation Processes;
  • and Adequacy of Current Succession Law in Light of the Constitution and Policy Considerations.

Each panel will be followed by open, moderated discussions among the authors and invited commentators.
