Rethinking Admin Law: From APA to Z


Rethinking Admin Law: From APA to Z highlights ideas from leading administrative law scholars and practitioners addressing what an affirmative progressive agenda for regulatory reform might look like.  From creating an ROTC program for civilian government to recruit, train, subsidize, and help place a new generation of government officials to making the President subject to the APA to challenging our overreliance on legal procedure, these essays demonstrate that regulatory reform does not have to be synonymous with deregulation.

As Senator Sheldon Whitehouse says in the Foreword, Rethinking Admin Law: From APA to Z comes at an important time: “Regulatory agencies ensure that we have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink, that our workplaces are safe, that our retirement accounts are secure from risky speculation and self-dealing, and much more. Yet they are under a sustained political and legal attack. Progressives must respond.”
