An Impeachment Primer


For those of you who want a refresher course on the constitutional law of impeachment, Akhil Amar and I created a primer, organized around the issues raised by the Clinton impeachment. We offered it as an online supplement for the 4th edition of the Brest Levinson casebook, which was published in 1999.  We never incorporated it into the 5th edition in 2006 because it no longer seemed all that important to teach.  As Mark Tushnet suggests, however, there is a slight chance that the issues may become relevant again.

And, by the way, the 6th edition of Brest Levinson was published this past month, and is available at fine bookstores near you.
