Paul D. Clement


My focus will be on how executive power is best allocated and divided in discharging one very important executive function, and that is the function dealing with the law and taking care that the law be faithfully executed, principally through the Justice Department. Second, my focus will be practical. There are others on some of the later panels who are better equipped and better able to discuss this as a purely theoretical matter. So one of the things I hope to add is a practical perspective based on the last seven and a half years that I spent in the Justice Department, all of which I spent in the Office of the Solicitor General.
