Administrative Law SSRN Reading List, April 2024 Edition

We had a wonderful two-day ABA Administrative Law Conference in Washington, DC, earlier this monththe first such in-person conference for the ABA Administrative Law Section since before COVID-19. It was so much fun to catch up with so many of you, to listen to you present your current scholarship, to hear about the successes and challenges at your federal agencies, and so forth. I’m grateful we have the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice in our field!

With many law professors grading final exams and many agency lawyers having just wrapped up (or soon to wrap up) major rulemaking initiatives before the Congressional Review Act window opens, many of us are no doubt seeking opportunities to procrastinate and/or geek out. There’s lot of great new administrative law scholarship to help on that front. Here is the April 2024 Edition of the most-downloaded recent papers (those announced in the last 60 days) from SSRN’s U.S. Administrative Law eJournal, which is edited by Bill Funk.

  1. Free Speech On Campus? Thirty-Seven Questions (and Almost As Many Answers) by Cass R. Sunstein
  2. A Court of First View by Stephen Vladeck (Harvard Law Review forthcoming)
  3. Regulators Should Value Nonhuman Animals by Cass R. Sunstein
  4. Foreign Affairs, Nondelegation, and the Major Questions Doctrine by Curtis Bradley & Jack Landman Goldsmith (University of Pennsylvania Law Review forthcoming)
  5. The Shortseller Enrichment Commission?: Whistleblowers, Activist Short Sellers, and The New Privatization of Public Enforcement by Alexander I. Platt (Washington Law Review forthcoming)
  6. Noise Law: Scaling Without A Modulus by Cass R. Sunstein
  7. The Unenumerated Power by Caitlin B. Tully (Virginia Law Review forthcoming)
  8. What the Major Questions Doctrine is Not by Anita S. Krishnakumar (George Washington Law Review forthcoming)
  9. Presidential Adjudication by Emily Bremer (Virginia Law Review forthcoming)
  10. Public Patent Powers by Laura Dolbow (Michigan Law Review forthcoming)

Thanks to my terrific research assistant Neena Menon for helping put together this monthly post, and congratulations on graduating this month. I’m so excited to follow your career for years to come. I’ll report back in the June with the next edition.
