Congress's "Power to End a War" is the Topic of an Upcoming Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday January 30, 2007, entitled “Exercising Congress's Constitutional Power to End a War.” The panel will include David J. Barron of the Harvard Law School, Bradford Berenson, a partner with Sidney, Austin, LLP of Washington DC, Walter Dellinger, a professor at the Duke School of Law and also former acting Solicitor General of the United States, Louis Fisher, a specialist in Constitutional Law with the Library of Congress, and Robert F. Turner of the Center for National Security Law, University of Virginia School of Law. The hearing will be chaired by Senator Russ Feingold. Since the hearing is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM, it is a little too early to pop corn, but it should be fun. I wonder if I can get continuing legal education credit if I listen in?
