  • Foreword

    After meeting for a two-day live symposium on September 30 and October 1, 2009 at Albany Law School to discuss, honor, and reflect on the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth—and more importantly, the lessons that can be learned from his remarkable work prior to and during his time in the White House—the Albany Government Law Review has collected the scholarship from the conference and presents it here in this issue. Our goal in publishing the articles contained herein is to add to an ongoing conversation about the use, abuse, and limits of executive power while paying homage to, or in some instances even critiquing, the examples set by the sixteenth President of the United States.
