The Emoluments Clause – a 228 year old, 49 word clause in the Constitution — is getting a lot of press lately. It reads, in relevant part, “[N]o Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” Art. I, Sec. 9.

What does this mean? Why was it included in the Constitution? How should we interpret it now? Does it apply in the modern day when members of the government have outside business interests?

Join us as two experts – Professor Andy Grewal and Professor Jed Shugerman — discuss their different views and answer your questions.
