The emoluments clause is a provision in the U.S. Constitution to ensure that elected leaders do not gain a profit from their offices. Three groups sued President Trump over the emoluments clause in federal court. Political and legal analysts are uncertain what the outcomes of these cases will be.

This civil conversation activity offers a structured discussion on the emoluments clause and the presidency, under the guidance of a facilitator, in which students are encouraged to engage intellectually with challenging materials, gain insight about their own point of view, and strive for a shared understanding of issues.
