About the Blog

Notice & Comment, a blog from the Yale Journal on Regulation and the ABA Section of Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice, is managed by the Yale Journal on Regulation.

The blog seeks to facilitate dialogue between legal scholars and practitioners about a wide variety of regulatory topics, including administrative law generally, financial regulation, corporate law, environmental law, bankruptcy law, and tax law. The blog takes a broad view of regulation, and welcomes contributions from legal scholars and practitioners that may inform our understanding of public regulation in its various forms. Many of these contributions may be timely commentaries on regulatory events, papers, seminars, or pieces of legislation.

The American Bar Association promotes justice and the rule of law through work in Washington, DC and around the world.  Administrative law issues are central to attorneys practicing in a wide range of substantive areas, but many lawyers think of themselves as, say, a securities lawyer, or an environmental lawyer, or a food and drug lawyer, rather than as an administrative lawyer.  The ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice seeks to provide support, training, and contacts relevant to cross-cutting issues of administrative procedure and regulatory policy that all these lawyers can use but may not receive from entities focused on particular substantive areas.

All of the views expressed on this blog represent the opinions of the individuals expressing them; the Yale Journal on Regulation and the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice seek to provide a forum for the expression of different views and the views of the bloggers should not be construed to be those of the Yale Journal on Regulation, the American Bar Association or its Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice. Nothing contained herein is to be considered as the rendering of legal advice for specific cases, and readers are responsible for obtaining such advice from their own legal counsel.
