What is a Webinar?
A webinar consists of one or more instructors delivering content primarily via audio and a PowerPoint™ presentation. Unlike in a webcast, you will not see the instructor; you will only hear his/her voice and see the PowerPoint™ presentation on your screen as the instructor delivers the material. You will receive a PDF of the coursebook, just as you would for an in-person or webcast program.

Presidential transitions raise many important questions. Among them, how much power does a president have? What tools do presidents frequently rely upon in order to advance their agendas? And what role do Congress and the courts play in checking a president’s power? This session will provide an overview of the scope, and limits, of presidential power in modern politics, drawing on recent examples from the Obama and Trump administrations.

This program is part of a series of webinars that explore potential impacts of the new administration in Washington, D.C. Prior webinars in the series covered topics of Immigration Law, and LGBTQ Rights. Future programming will cover Enforcing Federal Priorites Through Commandering and Financial Threats (5/24).
