December 5 — Impeachment: Political Shenanigans Or Constitutional Remedy

December 5 — Impeachment: Political Shenanigans or Constitutional Remedy

The Congress seems consumed by the possibility of an impeachment proceeding directed against the President of the United States. Stuart Chinn, from the University of Oregon law School, will present an objective assessment of the nature an purpose of impeachment as laid out in the U.S. Constitution.

Stuart Chinn writes and teaches on constitutional law, legislation, and legal and political history. At Oregon Law, he is the associate dean for programs and research and an associate professor of law. His book, RECALIBRATING REFORM: THE LIMITS OF POLITICAL CHANGE was published by Cambridge University Press in 2014. Additionally, Stuart has published in peer-reviewed venues such as University of Chicago Press, Law & Social Inquiry, and Polity.  He has also published (or has articles forthcoming) in law reviews such as the Maryland Law Review, Utah Law Review, and the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law, and others.

Stuart is currently conducting research that examines competing conceptions of legal impartiality. Prior to arriving at Oregon Law, Stuart was a visiting assistant professor at the University of Texas School of Law. A native of Eureka, California, Stuart received his B.A., Ph.D. (political science) and J.D. degrees from Yale University.
