This symposium issue featuring a report and articles on the Twenty-Fifth Amendment and the presidential succession system is perfectly timed. Its release comes in the final month of the year that marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment’s ratification and at a moment of unprecedented public discussion of the Amendment. Yet, in Fordham Law School’s unique history with the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, auspicious timing is not unusual.
