“The Second Hoover Commission’s 60th Anniversary and Lessons for Regulatory Reform”
The Hoover Institution — 1399 New York Ave. NW, Washington, D.C.
On March 16, the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice and the Hoover Institution will co-host an afternoon-long conference on the past, present, and future of regulatory reform, at the Hoover Institution’s facilities in downtown Washington, D.C.
Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the Second Hoover Commission’s final report, “Legal Services and Procedure,” proposing reforms to agency procedure, including several proposals still germane today. In honor of that report and its potential lessons for today, the Section and Hoover will present a variety of speakers looking at some historic proposals for regulatory reform, the present state of affairs, and the current prospects for reform.
A formal announcement will soon be released, with RSVP information.
