In 2016, President Trump campaigned to "drain the swamp" of Washington, DC. The new presidential administration, however, has drawn criticism from government ethics professionals over conflicts of interest issues and even an obscure constitutional provision, the Emoluments Clause. Please join the American Constitution Society in hosting Jennifer Ahearn '04, policy counsel at the Citizens for Responsibility for Ethics in Washington (CREW) in discussing these issues and more. Professor Kathryn Bradley will moderate. Lunch to be provided. Sponsored by the American Constitution Society and co-sponsored by ACS's North Carolina Lawyer Chapter. Contact Zach Newkirk at for any questions.
