Who Regulates the Regulators?
From: Mercatus Center
Please join the Mercatus Center’s Regulation University and GMU School of Law professor Todd Zywicki for a course on who regulates government regulators.
Several key debates this year will focus on the economic impact of federal regulations. The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is pleased to offer a series of courses designed to help congressional staff better understand the regulatory process. Specifically, these classes will provide staff with the concepts and skills necessary to conduct informed regulatory oversight.
The second course in this series will examine the degree to which executive branch and independent agencies are subject to checks and balances on their regulatory authority, and explore:
- Why it is necessary to regulate regulators
- Factors that strength or weaken regulatory accountability
- What Nixon-era bureaucracy and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have in common
For counsels working for members of Congress, the Mercatus Center will make applications to the Kentucky Bar Association Continuing Legal Education Commission and the Virginia Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Board to approve this course for one (1) general CLE credit hour. More information on the status of CLE credit applications will be available at the course.
