What happens when the president is disabled or dies?  What about when there's no vice president?  Fordham Conversations host John Rogan moderated a panel at Fordham Law School about the 25th Amendment and what would happen if a president wasn’t able to perform his or her powers and duties.  The discussion was between Fordham Law Professor John Feerick and Professor Joel Goldstein of Saint Louis University School of Law.  
 
Feerick wrote an article in the Fordham Law Review on presidential succession that was published a month before the Kennedy assassination.  That article helped guide the drafting of the 25th Amendment.  
 
Goldstein has studied the 25th Amendment extensively—the history that preceded it, its drafting and its uses.  He’s perhaps that nation’s leading authority on the vice presidency.  
 
The discussion was held at Fordham Law School to mark the 50th anniversary of the 25th Amendment's ratification.
