      EVENT DETAILS
      Fellow Jack Markell "How to Avoid Being a Lame Duck” (Students Only, Off the Record)

      Pundits and casual observers begin to label executive branch leaders as lame ducks just around the time the leaders are sworn in for their last term in office. But there are plenty of tools available for governors and others to continue to be effective until their last moments in office. We will explore successful strategies that counter the narrative of a lame duck term. This seminar is part of IOP Pritzker Fellow Jack Markell's series, “Governing from a World View."  This seminar is open to students only and off the record. Registration is required. However, seating is limited on a first come, first serve basis; capacity in the IOP Living Room is 45. Doors will open 30 minutes before the event begins. Any unclaimed seats will be released 10 minutes before the event begins. Please arrive early to claim your seat. If you can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket order on Eventbrite so others may register. This venue is physically accessible and has gender-neutral restrooms. Please contact the Institute of Politics at politics@uchicago.edu or 773-834-4671 with any questions or accommodation requests.
