The ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice has a terrific debate coming up on the evening of June 15th between Philip Hamburger and David Vladeck, with Judge Randolph moderating. You can register here. And here are the details:
“CHEVRON BIAS” AND THE ADMINSTRATIVE STATE
A GREAT DEBATE
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.
American Bar Association
1050 Connecticut Ave. NW, Suite 570, Washington, DC (Farragut North Metro)
In his recent book, Is Administrative Law Unlawful?, Professor Philip Hamburger argued that judicial deference to administrative interpretation violates judges’ constitutional duty to independently decide cases. Building on his book’s argument that Chevron deference “is an abandonment of judicial office,” Prof. Hamburger writes in a forthcoming article that “Chevron deference” is in fact “Chevron bias,” a systemic bias in favor of the government against Americans.
Prof. Hamburger will discuss his view of Chevron with an esteemed scholar and practitioner of administrative law, Professor David Vladeck. In addition to his scholarship, Prof. Vladeck directed the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection for four years. He is a Senior Fellow of the Administrative Conference of the United States, and an elected member of the American Law Institute.
The discussion will be led by Judge Randolph of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
