Aspects of Deconstruction: The 'Easy Case' of the Under-Aged President

7 Pages Posted: 29 May 2014

Date Written: May 28, 1990

Abstract

When the deconstructionist says that all cases are to some degree problematic, the mainstream legal scholar gleefully pulls out a favorite crystal-clear case and asserts "not this one!" Judging from the law review commentary, the most popular of these "easy cases" concerns the constitutional mandate that the President shall be at least thirty-five years of age.

Keywords: deconstructionist, legal scholars, law review commentary, U.S. Constitution, U.S. president
