Eric Posner, a professor of law at the University of Chicago, lectures at the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago on a subject he's well-familiar with, being an expert on constitutional law. "Posner will discuss the bounds on executive authority in the U.S. and review several precedents that suggest the president is bound more by political than legal constraints," according to an announcement. "He will describe his reasoning as to why President Obama’s recent executive order on undocumented immigrants is legal." After the lecture, drink coffee and rub shoulders. These Sunday programs are free and open to the public. Even child care is available.
