Whither Goeth the Administrative State in the Time of Trump?

05:30 pm at Ernst & Young LLP 5 Times Square New York, NY 10036

On March 22, 2017, the Inn will present a program exploring the Deconstruction of the Administrative State, to use a phrase coined by Steve Bannon to describe one objective of the Trump Administration. The modern administrative state has been with us since the New Deal, and has if anything become more robust and important in American life since then. Are we now in for a change in direction, and a radical reconsideration of its constitutional foundations? And how would the appointment of Judge Gorsuch affect any of this? Throughout the program we will be posing the legal questions raised by all this to you for your ever-thoughtful answers and comments. Come and participate.
