The first panel of the "Future of the President's Pardon Power" series, jointly organized by the Drug Enforcement and Policy Center, the Collateral Consequences Resource Center, the Federal Sentencing Reporter, and the David F. and Constance B. Girard-diCarlo Center for Ethics, Integrity and Compliance, will examine the unusual nature of President Donald Trump’s pardoning, looking at the grants themselves and the process that produced them. This panel will set the stage for the two subsequent panels about the future of presidential pardoning, by asking basic questions about the role of a regular pardon process and the result of it having been sidelined by Trump. It will also consider whether Trump’s pardons were an aberration or the predictable result of trends in pardoning over the past thirty years.
