Last month was a particularly good one for administrative law scholarship on SSRN, with a number of great new papers from the “who’s who” and “risings stars” in the field. Unfortunately I lack the bandwidth this month to comment on each piece. But here is the August 2017 edition of the most-downloaded recent papers (those announced in the last 60 days) from SSRN’s U.S. Administrative Law eJournal, which is edited by Bill Funk.
- Marbury v. Madison and the Concept of Judicial Deference by Aditya Bamzai (81 Missouri Law Review 1057 (2016))
- Reviewability and the ‘Law of Rules’: An Essay in Honor of Justice Scalia by Adrian Vermeule (92 Notre Dame Law Review 2163 (2017))
- Justice Scalia and the Evolution of Chevron Deference by Aditya Bamzai (21 Texas Review of Law & Politics 295 (2017))

For more on why SSRN and this eJournal are such terrific resources for administrative law scholars and practitioners, check out my first post on the subject here. You can check out the full rankings, updated daily, here.
Thanks to my terrific research assistant Kaile Sepnafski for helping put together this monthly post. I’ll report back at the start of October with the next edition.
