On Friday, June 23, Stanford University’s Hoover Institution will host a public conference in Washington, DC, for discussion of new scholarship on regulation and administrative law.
It is the latest event convened by the Hoover Institution’s “Regulation and the Rule of Law Initiative,” which was founded by Michael McConnell, Charles Calomiris, and the late Allan Meltzer, to bring together scholars across disciplines to discuss the past, present, and future of federal administration.
Scholars will discuss papers that were originally presented at a workshop several weeks ago at the Hoover Institution on Stanford’s campus. Full details can be found below, with links to the versions of the draft papers that were presented at that workshop.
We hope you can join us. RSVP here.

Reforming the Administrative State:
Looking Back, and Looking Forward
The Hoover Institution’s Regulation and the Rule of Law Initiative
June 23, 2017
The Hoover Institution
1399 New York Ave. NW, Suite 500
The recent presidential and congressional elections present a rare opportunity to significantly reform the modern administrative state. And the task of reform requires a deeper understanding of the modern administrative institutions’ origins.
The Hoover Institution’s Regulation and the Rule of Law Initiative continues to encourage the interdisciplinary development of significant scholarship on these issues. Please join us on Friday, June 23, when a number of scholars will present papers on the history, law, economics, and philosophy of the modern administrative state.
