GW Law Review Hosts Panel at ABA Administrative Law Conference

In conjunction with the American Bar Association Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice, The George Washington Law Review will host its annual panel at this year’s Administrative Law Conference on Friday, October 20. The panel, “Evaluating Federal Actions: The Powers, Processes, and Proclamations of Administrative Agencies and the Oval Office,” will take place from 1:15pm to 2:45pm at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The afternoon will bring together Cass Sunstein of Harvard Law School, J.B. Ruhl of Vanderbilt Law School (with his co-presenter John Nay of New York University School of Law), and Aaron Nielson of Brigham Young University Reuben J. Clark Law School, and will be moderated by GW Law’s own Professor Robert Glicksman.

Each panelist will discuss their latest research, developed through articles that will be published in The George Washington Law Review’s Volume 86 Annual Review of Administrative Law. What are the “certain kinds” of decisions that executive agencies can make? Does regulatory delay deserve its poor reputation? What new insights can text analytics reveal about Presidential language? The presenting scholars will examine these contemporary questions in the field of Administrative Law. Specifically, the panelists will explore the American nondelegation principle as applied to administrative agencies; the benefits and challenges of ossification in agencies; and computational topic modeling of the language that flows from the Oval Office.
