Professor Ian Bartrum Appears on Live And Local With Kevin Wall

Ian Bartrum is an Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Aug. 29, he appeared on KXNT's Live And Local With Kevin Wall to talk about the Constitutional hurdles the President faces in order to declare war on Syria (Hour 2, 5:00-minute mark).

"The president obviously is the commander in chief, whatever that implies. The Congress is authorized to declare war and to make all the rules for the Army, and Navy, and maintain them, etc. So it's never been really clear exactly where the boundary is between the two branches in terms of war-making power," he said during the program.

Professor Bartrum's research interests are in constitutional history and theory, the Establishment Clause, and constitutional education.
