This CLE is a discussion of the proper role of the Special Counsel.

• Are Special Counsels too focused on particular actors and actions, or necessary for politically charged complex investigations?
• Do Special Counsels inevitably overreach?
• Are Special Counsels a proper check on executive power?
• Are Special Counsels in the public interest; do they advance or slow democratic governance?

Reception to follow. Wine and Cheese will be provided.
