The Mini-Unitary Executive and the Original Public Meaning of the Opinions-in-Writing Clause (not yet drafted, planned for 2011-2012 publication)
This is paper is part of my continuing project of discussing the under explored clauses and private law linguistic origins of the Constitution of 1787. In this paper, I argue that the Opinions-in-Writing Cause was meant to serve a concrete purpose and, contrary to Hamilton, was no mere redundancy. The Opinions-in-Writing Clause effectuated the record keeping function of the Mini-Unitary Executive.
This paper is not yet drafted. It is just in the idea stage.
