Do Regulatory Reform Efforts Inevitably Entrench the Administrative State?

Administrative Law & Regulation Practice Group, Article I Initiative, and Regulatory Transparency Project Teleforum

Government regulation is pervasive, complex and expensive to administer. Americans have a vital interest and real need to understand how the current regulatory system can best be improved and made to achieve its laudable objectives for health, safety and environmental protection using means that are both cost-effective and fully consistent with the rule of law. But can we make the regulatory system more effective without strengthening the administrative state and undermining the rule of law? Can regulatory reform be pursued in a manner that is compatible with the rule of law?

This Teleforum brings together two speakers well-versed in regulation and regulatory reform. Professor Lambert and Mr. Davis will describe and discuss their differing approaches to reform, and their differing perspectives on the fundamental assumptions that undergird the current regulatory system.

Featuring:

J. Kennerly Davis, Jr., Senior Attorney, Former Deputy Attorney General for Virginia

Professor Thom Lambert, Wall Chair in Corporate Law and Governance and Professor of Law, University of Missouri School of Law
