The Second Hoover Commission: Lessons for Regulatory Reform

[We're moving this up, because the proceedings for this event, "on the Second Hoover Commission and the historical trajectory of regulatory reform," have now been posted on YouTube.]

The Second Hoover Commission's 60th Anniversary: Lessons for Regulatory Reform

On March 16, the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice and the Hoover Institution will co-host an afternoon-long conference on the past, present, and future of regulatory reform.

Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the Second Hoover Commission's final report, "Legal Services and Procedure," proposing reforms to agency procedure, including several proposals still germane today. In honor of that report and its potential lessons for today, the Section and Hoover will present a variety of speakers looking at some historic proposals for regulatory reform, the present state of affairs, and the current prospects for reform.  [RSVP here.]
