Editors: Matthew Adler and Brian Bix
Duke University Law School and University of Minnesota

This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts that concern provisions in the U.S. Constitution which structure the national government or allocate authority between the national government and the states or between the states. Topics to be covered, among many others, include: Presidential and Congressional authority over foreign affairs and matters of national security; treaties and executive agreements; executive privilege; the status of independent agencies; the appointment and removal process; Presidential and Congressional oversight of administrative agencies; the legislative process; the scope of the Commerce, Taxing, and Spending Powers; the anti-commandeering doctrine; the dormant Commerce Clause; and the Privileges and Immunities Clause. We welcome a broad range of methodological approaches, including both doctrinal scholarship and more theoretical work grounded in economics, history, literary theory, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.
