To Shrink or Not to Shrink?
Presidential Authority Over National Monuments
Monday, November 20, 2017
University of Denver Sturm College of Law, Room 165
6:30pm – 8:30pm
This year’s Carver Colloquium will debate the ability of standing presidents to diminish or abolish national monuments created by past presidents. The authority to expand national monuments has always been included in the Antiquities Act, but recent controversy has questioned the legal authority for presidents to shrink the size of some monuments.
