POSTPONED The Annual John Gedid Lecture Series

This event has been postponed until the Fall 2020 semester. We hope you will join us at that time.

Join us for this year's John Gedid Lecture Series: Divide the Executive? Revisiting Separation of Powers in the Presidential Era presented by Kevin M. Stack. 

This event is free to attend but registration via our Eventbrite listing is required. 1 PA substantive CLE credit is available.

This lecture series honors John Gedid, one of the founders of Widener Law Commonwealth, the school’s first vice-dean and the founder of Widener’s Law and Government Institute. Professor Gedid has served as a wonderful mentor to every faculty member the school has hired. The series showcases the work of nationally recognized young scholars much the same way Professor Gedid has fostered, encouraged, and applauded the work of those who joined the school he helped to found.
