Now Accepting Scalia Law Student, Faculty, and Staff Applications for LEC Symposium for Judges

Symposium for Federal Judges on Judicial Deference and Regulatory Agency Science

SYMPOSIUM FOR JUDGES ON JUDICIAL DEFERENCE AND REGULATORY AGENCY SCIENCE

 

 

 

Antonin Scalia Law School students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend the Law & Economic Center’s Symposium on Judicial Deference and Regulatory Agency Science. The adequacy of federal agency rulemaking on any number of issues—ranging from consumer and environmental protection to trade, transportation, and technology policy–cannot be assessed without an understanding of the scientific and economic impacts of various proposals. Even when deferring to agency expertise, judges are still called upon to evaluate how closely agencies hew to their statutorymandates and whether agencies proffer a reasoned connection between underlying evidence and their regulatory choices.

The symposium will feature panel debates on such topics as: The Regulation of Emerging Risks: Precautionary Principle or Risk v. Risk, Cost-Benefit Analysis of Administrative Law, and a discussion of regulatory Daubert. The symposium will also include a panel of noted federal jurists who will discuss their experience grappling with scientific evidence in the courts.
