The University of Chicago Club of North Carolina presents Professor Michael Gerhardt for a discussion of:
The Historic Impeachments of Donald Trump: What Did We Learn? What Happens Next?
Join us for a fascinating evening with Professor Michael Gerhardt, the Burton Craige Distinguished Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His teaching and research focuses on constitutional conflicts between presidents and Congress. Gerhardt is the author of seven books, including “Lincoln’s Mentors” (Harper Collins, 2021), and leading treatises on impeachment, appointments, presidential power, Supreme Court precedent, and separation of powers. Gerhardt attended the University of Chicago Law School, where he graduated order of the coif and served as a research assistant to both Phil Kurland and Cass Sunstein and as one of the two student editors of The Supreme Court Review.
Professor Gerhardt’s extensive public service has included testifying more than 20 times before Congress, including serving as special counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee for eight of the nine sitting Supreme Court justices; and as one of four constitutional scholars called by the House Judiciary Committee during President Trump’s impeachment proceedings. In the second impeachment trial of President Trump, he was an expert commentator for CNN, Fox, and MSNBC and served as special counsel to the Presiding Officer, Senator Patrick Leahy. In 2019, the Order of the Coif named Gerhardt as its Distinguished Visitor for 2020-2021, an award given to only one law professor each year for outstanding legal scholarship.
