Solum on The Case for Originalism

In light of that coverage, I thought readers may be interested in a terrific series by Larry Solum, who testified at the confirmation hearing, entitled “The […]

Gorsuch on Chevron Deference, Round II

by Chris Walker — Thursday, Mar. 23, 2017@chris_j_walker

In a post entitled Gorsuch on Chevron, Eric Posner has posted the brief Q&A on Chevron deference from the first round of questioning of Judge Gorsuch before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

RegBlog Has a New (and Improved) Name: The Regulatory Review

by Chris Walker — Tuesday, Mar. 7, 2017@chris_j_walker

Last week the editors of the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s RegBlog announced that they are changing RegBlog’s name to The Regulatory Review. As far as I’m concerned, this is a very welcome change. RegBlog is a go-to source for scholars and practitioners of administrative law and regulation, but it really isn’t a blog, at […]
