On September 17, the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership welcomed Michael McConnell to Arizona State University where he presented the 2019 Constitution Day Address.
At the Constitutional Convention, the delegates struggled to create a presidency with sufficient authority to lead the nation, but without creating an elective monarch. This lecture outlined the little-known story of how the framers went about that task, and its implications for today.
Michael W. McConnell is the Richard and Frances Mallery Professor and director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School, and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. From 2002 to the summer of 2009, he served as a Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. McConnell has held chaired professorships at the University of Chicago and the University of Utah, and visiting professorships at Harvard and NYU. He has published widely in the fields of constitutional law and theory, especially church and state, equal protection and constitutional structure.
