Administrative Law SSRN Reading List, February 2017 Edition

As I predicted in last month’s SSRN post, with the Spring law review submission cycle upon us we’re starting to see some really terrific new papers being posted to SSRN. Here is the February 2017 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. Unfortunately, I don’t have the bandwidth to provide commentary on each piece this month. But here is the top-ten list:

  1. Government Lawyers in the Trump Administration by W. Bradley Wendel
