Alex Klein on Delegating Killing

Season 1, Ep. 488

In this episode, Alexandra L. Klein, Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at Washington & Lee University School of Law, discusses her article "Nondelegating Death." Klein begins by describing the nondelegation doctrine, its purpose, and history. She explains how nondelegation is relevant to the death penalty. And she observes that legislatures often delegate decisions about methods of execution. She argues that the nondelegation doctrine should require legislatures to wrestle with the "machinery of death." Klein is on Twitter at @ALKM27.
