This special online CLE program is designed to provide a review of the history and the legal issues relating to the (now former) office and role of the independent counsel and more generally, special prosecutors in the Federal System. Special attention will be paid to the constitutional issues, doctrines and case law relating to those offices and roles (including delegation of powers and the Nondelegation Doctrine), the executive over the prosecutorial function, and the interrelation of the officers of the three branches of the Federal government with independent counsels and special prosecutors. It will also cover ethical duties of supervising other attorneys in carrying out the commands of executives (both government and private) placed in superior positions to them. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on August 21, 2015.
