Save the Date and Register: Annual ABA AdLaw Conference in DC, Oct. 19-20, 2017

admin_law_logo_smallBelow are the details from the ABA AdLaw Section.

For what it’s worth, my ABA Adjudication Co-Chair (and the ACUS Vice Chair) Matt Wiener and I have helped organize two great panels on agency adjudication — one on recent developments related to the constitutionality of administrative law judges and the other on agency adjudication outside of the Administrative Procedure Act — and I’ll be doing the agency adjudication part of the annual developments panel on Friday. I’ll also be moderating a great panel on Josh Chafetz’s new book Congress’s Constitution and the oversight role of Congress in the federal regulatory state. This should be a really great conference, as it is every year, and I hope you’ll consider joining us.
