New This Week:

The Limits of Executive Orders

President Trump issued some notorious executive orders in his first year in office (e.g., anti-Muslim immigration restrictions), and as his agenda stalls in Congress, he may continue to issue more executive directives. But is there a limit on this presidential power? Abbi Coursolle, senior attorney at the National Health Law Program, explains the legal options for attorneys for low-income clients in her new Clearinghouse article, "Executive Directives: What Poverty Lawyers Need to Know." She discussed the topic in this month's Advocacy Exchange. Watch a recording now.
