The Youngstown Canon – A Conversation with Professor Kristen Eichensehr

April 05, 2021 • 12:30 AM • Virtual

Please join the Duke Law Journal (DLJ) and the Virginia Law Review as we host Kristen Eichensehr, Professor of Law at the University of Virginia, to discuss her forthcoming article in DLJ, the Youngstown Canon. Duke Law professor Curtis Bradley, William Van Alstyne Professor of Law, will moderate the discussion. In her article, Professor Eichensehr argues that when Congress passes a bill or resolution by a majority of both houses and the President exercises the veto, preventing the act from becoming law, then the expressed congressional opposition to the President's view should be used to narrowly construe the underlying statutory or constitutional authority the President is claiming if that authority is ambiguous.
