Hastings Law Journal presents their annual symposium with this year’s topic being Revolution or Evolution: Administrative Law in the Age of Trump, on Feb. 21, 2020 in San Francisco, CA.
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).
