Volume 93 Symposium Announcement

October 31, 2017

On Friday, November 10, 2017 Volume 93 of the Notre Dame Law Review will host its annual Symposium in the Patrick F. McCartan Courtroom. This year’s Symposium is titled Administrative Lawmaking in the 21st Century.

The Symposium will look forward to the future with respect to administrative law.  Panels of leading academics and distinguished practitioners will reflect on the fact that we are arguably at a crossroads in how we make regulatory law and policy — and address, among other issues, the effect this has on how we design and staff administrative agencies, Chevron Step Two’s domain, nonenforcement of the law, and the meaning of provisions limiting presidential removal of administrative officers.

This year’s keynote speaker is the Hon. Judge Thomas M. Hardiman of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Judge Hardiman was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania in 2003 by President George W. Bush. In 2007, President George W. Bush nominated him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Judge Hardiman will offer a judge’s perspective on administrative lawmaking in the United States and reflect on the topics addressed by the Symposium contributors.

The Symposium also brings together a distinguished group of administrative law scholars and practitioners who will present their papers on the present state and future of administrative law, followed by a moderator led discussion.

After the Symposium, the Law Review will host a reception for invited guests.
