Mark your calendars for the American Bar Association's debate, "Chevron Bias" and the Administrative State on June 15 at 5 p.m.:
In his recent book, Is Administrative Law Unlawful?, Professor Philip Hamburger argued that judicial deference to administrative interpretation violates judges' constitutional duty to independently decide cases. Building on his book's argument that Chevron deference "is an abandonment of judicial office," Prof. Hamburger writes in a forthcoming article that "Chevron deference" is in fact "Chevron bias," a systemic bias in favor of the government against Americans.
Prof. Hamburger will discuss his view of Chevron with an esteemed scholar and practitioner of administrative law, Professor David Vladeck. In addition to his scholarship, Prof. Vladeck directed the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection for four years. He is a Senior Fellow of the Administrative Conference of the United States, and an elected member of the American Law Institute.
The discussion will be led by Judge Randolph of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
