Hastings Law Journal Symposium: Revolution or Evolution: Administrative Law in the Age of Trump, 2/21

This Friday, February 21st, the Hastings Law Journal will be hosting an administrative law symposium, and a number of our regular bloggers will be participating. You can register for the conference here. Here are the details from the Journal:

Join Hastings Law Journal for our annual symposium at UC Hastings College of the Law. This year, we will consider how the Trump administration has pushed the boundaries of regulatory policy and upended longstanding policy assumptions in a variety of different domains. Specifically, the symposium will consider the Trump administration’s use of administrative procedures to advance policy goals, the judicial response to Trump administration policies, and whether any administrative law doctrines and theories should be reconsidered. At the symposium, we plan on having panels dedicated to discussing how the Trump administration’s use of administrative law has impacted environmental law, immigration law, and tax policy. 

The symposium will include a keynote address from Howard Shelanski, the Obama Administration’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).
