Today, Checks & Balances announces the addition of three new affiliated members: Edward Larson, Irina Manta, and Erin Sheley. The expanded group now includes nearly two dozen prominent attorneys who would traditionally be considered conservative or libertarian, and serve as vocal defenders of the Constitution and the rule of law.

Here are the new affiliated members: 

  • Edward J. Larson: Hugh and Hazel Darling Chair in Law and University Professor of History at Pepperdine University
  • Irina D. Manta: Professor of Law at Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University 
  • Erin L. Sheley: Associate Professor at University of Oklahoma College of Law 

In the past, Checks & Balances has issued statements on the impeachment inquiry, the recent OIG report, and the Mueller Report, among other issues.
