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
- 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.
