This reading group will examine the Supreme Court’s evolving approach to administrative law. From delegation to deference to structural separation of powers, the Roberts Court has begun changing administrative law in fundamental ways—a process that remains ongoing and that promises to have profound consequences for the nation for generations to come. Relying on both original sources and scholarly commentary, we will read and discuss the Court’s cases to better understand what is happening and where it will likely lead.
