Prof. Julian Ku Discusses Iran Nuclear Deal in National Constitution Center Podcast

Julian Ku, the Maurice A. Deane Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, participated in a podcast discussion on the constitutionality of the Iran nuclear agreement hosted by the National Constitution Center.

In the podcast, Professor Ku debated David Rivkin, a partner at BakerHostetler and the author of a recent Wall Street Journal article arguing that the Iran agreement is unconstitutional because it was not concluded as a treaty requiring two-thirds of the Senate’s approval.

Professor Ku explained his view that the unusual nature of this nonbinding agreement does not require the Senate’s approval as a treaty, but that any future president could also withdraw or abrogate the Iran agreement without any legal consequences.
