The Supreme Court ended its year’s work this summer by deciding several cases involving issues from the modern administrative state: the breadth of powers that Congress delegates to agencies, the amount of deference that courts give to agencies’ legal interpretations, and the scrutiny that courts should give to agencies’ justifications for their actions. The justices decided some issues, but they also raised questions about the future of administrative law.

As the Court returns from its break, how will the courts continue to scrutinize these issues? Will the Trump administration’s major regulatory policies survive judicial review?

This event is cosponsored by George Mason University’s C. Boyden Gray Center for the Study of the Administrative State.
