The Trump Presidency


Join us on February 1st and February 7th 
 
This February, CAPI is hosting a two-part series to discuss the corruption risks present at the outset of the Trump Administration. On Wednesday, join us for our first event as we discuss the corruption concerns raised by Trump's business holdings, Trump's impact on anti-corruption enforcement in the U.S., and much more with Harvard Law Professor Matthew Stephenson and CAPI Advisory Board Member and Debevoise & Plimpton Partner Jeremy Feigelson. 



Our second event, on February 7, will feature Boston University Law School Professor Jay Wexler dissecting Trump's possible violations of our Constitution's Emoluments Clause, including available remedies and the lawsuit filed on this topic earlier this week.
