News Source on Supreme Court/Constitutional LawWith the opening of the U.S. Supreme Court s session Monday, October 5, you may find a need for background and historical context in addition to expert opinion on current cases and issues being considered.
Joel Grossman, a professor of political science at The Johns Hopkins University and a constitutional law scholar, has taught the subject for more than 30 years. He has been widely quoted and interviewed in local and national media on Supreme Court issues and cases.
A soon-to-be published research paper, The Public vs. the Private President: Striking A Balance, examines issues at the heart of the recent White House scandal. One question Grossman looked at in the paper: Can a sitting President pardon himself?
The answer: yes.
Prior to coming to Hopkins, he taught for many years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His former students include U.S. Senator Russel D. Feingold and journalist Jeff Greenfield.
Grossman is familiar and comfortable with the media, and he s a friendly and charming person. If you have an interest in speaking with him, please give me a call or contact me by e-mail.
