Columbia law professor Louis Henkin lectured on "The Constitution in the Nuclear Age" in the Villard Room.  A constitutional lawyer and founder of the Center for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University, Henkin discussed how the United States government’s separation of powers and checks and balances affect nuclear decision-making.  Suggesting that it might not be constitutional for the President of the United States to make decisions regarding whether or not to use nuclear weapons, he emphasized Congress’s role saying, “The framers intended for these decisions to be made by Congress.”    The Miscellany News
