Administrative Law & Regulation Practice Group Teleforum
The growing role of the administrative agencies in American government is mirrored by a growing role of administrative law in legal education. The trend is exemplified by many law schools’ introduction of “Legislation and Regulation” (or “Leg-Reg”) as a first-year course.But as the administrative stats and administrative law grow and change, how should the curriculum change?To discuss this, the Administrative Law Section is pleased to host a teleforum with three leading administrative law scholars: Prof. Dan Farber of the University of California-Berkeley Law, Prof. Kristin Hickman of the University of Minnesota Law School, and Jim Tozzi, former regulatory official of the United States Office of Management and Budget and Director of Multinational Business Services at the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness.
The discussion will be moderated by Adam White, a Research Fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution and an adjunct professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School.
