For nearly 100 years the Supreme Court has declined to strike down laws that it believes “delegates” Congress’s legislative power to the Executive Branch. What would a more assertive “nondelegation doctrine” look like? Until then, what limits — if any — does the current nondelegation doctrine place upon Congress?  

Administrative Law nerds everywhere celebrate as we welcome an indefatigable champion of the nondelegation doctrine, George Washington University Law Professor Alan Morrison. Together, he and Adam discuss separation of powers, the judiciary’s role in enforcing that separation, and the timeless problem of vague laws. 

How strong is the “least dangerous branch?” Moreover, how self-restrained should it be?

In this episode of “Unprecedential,” Adam White interviews Greg Weiner, AEI visiting scholar and associate professor at Assumption College. Professor Weiner’s latest book, “The Political Constitution: The Case Against Judicial Supremacy,” argues that an over-active judiciary undermines the Constitution’s republican qualities. He and Adam discuss judicial restraint, judicial legitimacy, and the Madisonian and Burkean themes of Weiner’s previous books.

What is the essence of the American presidency? How does it compare to what the Constitution intended it to be? Adam White and guest Stephen Knott discuss.
