The Trump Presidency: How is he using the legislative 'tools'?
Jeffrey Weinberg is recognised for his unique perspective on the contemporary U.S. presidency, as both a practitioner and an academic. He serves as a legislative attorney at the Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President, where he began his career as a summer intern under President Nixon. In 2002, he was detailed to the staff of the White House's National Economic Council. He was honoured with the OMB's highest award, the Distinguished Service Award: "For outstanding contributions over six Presidential Administrations in managing the legislative clearance process on behalf of the OMB Director and the President". In January, he began serving his ninth President.
Jeffrey Weinberg has taught graduate courses on the presidency and the Executive Branch at four universities in Washington, D.C. and regularly lectures for university students, Federal and private sector executives, and public audiences. He is currently Adjunct Professor at The Washington Campus, a consortium of 17 business schools. In 2008, he was a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar, based at the University of London, and lectured at universities throughout the U.K. He received his law degree from George Washington University, graduated from Columbia College, and spent his junior year studying political science and economics at the LSE.
Mr Weinberg will be speaking in his academic capacity and not on behalf of the Office of Management and Budget or the Trump Administration.
This event is open to the public.
