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

Julian Ku, Maurice A. Deane Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, Faculty Director of International Programs

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.
