Professor Ruben Garcia Featured on KSNV News 3

Ruben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Jan. 29, he was featured on KSNV's News 3 Live at 4 (14:43 remaining mark), talking about President Obama and the use of executive orders.

"There's certainly things that a President can do consistent with the Constitution by executive act. There are of course limits to that. I think President Obama has done a careful study, being a former constitutional law professor, of what he can and can't do in terms of the executive authority that he has. So he has some ideas. Of course, there's going to be debate about some of them. There may even be some legal arguments, but we'll have to see how it goes," Professor Garcia said during the interview.

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
