Abstract

This short essay discusses my motivation for and the reading materials and procedures I use when offering about a half-dozen law students each semester a Directed Research option to research and write papers on the topic of Presidential impeachment. I recommend that those faculty members who may have only a modest Constitutional Law background, but who feel as I do that greater understanding and more sustained discussion of the merits and drawbacks of removal of President Trump from office through impeachment is called for, and who wish to facilitate such understanding and discussion without compromising their professional and ethical obligations to their students, consider trying this approach.
