The Chevron Doctrine – Will It Survive?

Event Description

Remote Only Event

The Chevron doctrine is an administrative law principle that says federal courts should defer to a federal agency's reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous or unclear statute that Congress delegated to the agency to administer.  In recent years, it has been under attack as part of the pushback against the so-called administrative state. In its current session, the US Supreme court will hear two cases concerning Chevron . We will have assembled a distinguished panel who will discuss the history of Chevron , its importance to environmental regulation, the Supreme Court challenges and the potential aftermath should Chevron be overturned.
