Public Law Workshop: “Public Law and the Administrative State”

In 2012-13, the Public Law Workshop will address “Public Law and the Administrative State.” We will read a mix of classic and contemporary work, in legal theory and adjacent disciplines, on the legal and political foundations of the administrative state, its virtues and vices, and its operation and consequences. In approximately half of the sessions, invited speakers will present papers on topics relevant to the workshop theme. Students will be required to write short response papers. Participation will be capped at 15 students. Applicants should send a resume, transcript and a brief statement of interest to Ellen Keng ( by August 15.
