Temple Law Review Symposium: "Executive Power: Exploring the Limits of Article II"

Per my promise in Thursday's post, I wanted to write separately to note the upcoming Temple Law Review Symposium on "Executive Power: Exploring the Limits of Article II," to be held at the Beasley School of Law on Friday, March 23, 2007.

The brochure is available here.  But, if you're too lazy to read it yourself, the event includes panels focusing on three separate papers -- Mark Rahdert on Hamdan and the detention of enemy combatants; Neil Kinkopf on the state secrets privilege; and yours truly on the relationship between martial law and habeas corpus, looking closely at Lincoln's suspension of habeas in 1861.  Perhaps the highlight of the event (or at least that to which I am looking the most forward) will be the keynote address by uberblogger (and Georgetown prof) Marty Lederman.

The event is part of Temple's larger celebration of the investiture of Dr. Ann Weaver Hart, the University's ninth president. For our Philadelphia-area readers, particularly those with an executive power fetish, it should be an intriguing series of conversations, and a worthwhile Friday distraction!
