Executive Privilege


Executive privilege is the right of the president of the United States to keep confidential certain information from subpoenas and other oversight measures by the legislative and judicial branches of government. To help understand this mighty but sometimes fuzzy power, this database provides primary and secondary source material such as government documents from the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, as well as law review articles and books invoking, debating, and exploring instances of executive privilege from the country’s founding to the present day. Compiled by Maxwell Anderson, a graduate of University of Nebraska College of Law, the Executive Privilege Database provides comprehensive treatment of this issue. For more information on this database, including tips and tricks to help maximize your research, check out the dedicated LibGuide.
