No doubt because of the contentious nature of the events that trigger their appointments, the work of special prosecutors and independent counsels is inevitably the subject of much debate and controversy. In what was a rich and engaging exchange of ideas, Visiting Professor of Law David Strauss led a discussion about the role of special prosecutors and independent counsels with HLS alumni and faculty who have been involved–on either the prosecution or defense team–in almost every major investigation of the White House and the president since, and including, Watergate.
