Tomorrow’s Administrative Law Review Symposium: The State of Chevron

by Christopher J. Walker — Wednesday, Mar. 23, 2016@chris_j_walker

The Administrative Law Review, which is the official journal of the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice, will be hosting its annual symposium tomorrow (Thursday, 3/24) afternoon from 2-5 p.m. at the American University Washington College of Law in Washington, DC (4300 Nebraska Ave. NW).

The symposium is entitled The State of Chevron: 15 Years After Mead.  Seth Waxman is the keynoter, and he will be followed by a panel that includes J. Peter Coll, Administrative Law Judge Margaret Buschmann, Professor Kristin Hickman, and me. The event is free; 1.5 CLE credits are available with a $55 registration fee.

Here is the description of the symposium, with the agenda and further details here:

The Administrative Law Review welcomes scholars, practitioners, and experts to discuss the state of Chevron, U.S.A.,  Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. in the 15 years since the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Mead Corp. In the aftermath of Mead, debate has grown over the clarity of the Chevron/Skidmore dividing line drawn in Mead , whether the amount of judicial ink spilled on this issue is worth the trouble, and how the doctrine might affect federal agency action. This Symposium will include a panel of distinguished leaders in the field, discussing the state of Chevron today and whether Mead has provided more or less clarity to the courts and affected parties.

Hope to see you there if you’re in town and have time!
