Digital Seminar: Congress as a Co-Equal Branch of Government


Congress as a Co-Equal Branch of Government

Tuesday May 12th, 12:00 – 3:00 P.M. EST

This digital seminar experience will focus on select Supreme Court decisions that highlight Congress’s role as a co-equal branch of government and the inherent tensions between the three branches of government. How has the judicial branch mediated this tension over the centuries? Has Congress ceded too much of its authority to other branches? Emerging Governance Leaders Alumni will virtually interact with fellow alumni whilst engaging in thoughtful dialogue. The seminar will be moderated by Gloria J. Browne- Marshall, professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

This opportunity will provide staffers with experiences and tools to help them thrive in their current roles and better position themselves for longer, more impactful careers in the U.S. Congress.

Eligibility and How to Register

Preference is given to alumni of Senate Socrates or the Emerging Governance Leaders series and to current congressional staffers. Registration is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, please send a short (1-2 paragraph) biography and head shot to the Socrates Team.
