This webinar will explore the phenomenon of agency “self-regulation,” understood as measures an agency takes voluntarily to limit its own discretion. Over a decade ago, in the George Washington Law Review, then- Professor Elizabeth Magill identified agency self-regulation as a distinct area worthy of inquiry and analysis. In recent years, interest in agency self-regulatory measures such as enforcement priorities and supervisory guidance has grown, making the topic even more salient. Featuring speakers from a wide range of regulatory backgrounds, this webinar will consider questions including: 1) What forms of procedural and substantive agency self-regulation are found across the administrative state today? 2) Why do some agencies engage in robust self-regulation and others hardly ever adopt self-regulatory measures? 3) What do agencies, regulated parties, and the public stand to gain or lose through agency self-regulation?
