Professor Michael J. Gerhardt , Samuel Ashe Distinguished Professor in Constitutional Law at UNC School of Law, a scholar in residence at the National Constitutional Center, and a visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, will be speaking at Quail Ridge Books about his latest book.

Impeachment: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford University Press) is the step back and deep reflection on the law of impeachment that everyone needs now. Written in an accessible and lively question-and-answer format, it offers a timely explanation of the impeachment process from its very meaning to its role in politics today.

The book defines the scope of impeachable offenses, and how the Constitution provides alternative procedures and sanctions for addressing misconduct in office. It explains why the only two presidential impeachments, those of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, failed to lead to conviction, and how the impeachments of federal judges illuminate the law and politics of the process.

As a legal expert and the only joint witness in the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, author Michael J. Gerhardt also explores a question frequently asked-will Donald Trump be impeached? This book does not take a side in the debate over the possible impeachment of the president; instead, it is a primer for anyone eager to learn about impeachment’s origins, practices, limitations, and alternatives.
