Administrative law today is marked by the legal equivalent of mortal combat, where foundational principles are fiercely disputed and basic doctrines are offered up for execution.  This panel will discuss this development and assess what the future may hold for administrative law, paying close attention to important administrative law decisions in the 2018-2019 as well as cases currently pending before the Court.  Panelists include two administrative law experts on Columbia's faculty, Professors Thomas Merrill and Gillian Metzger ’95, as well as a leading administrative law practitioner, CLS Lecturer in Law Zachary Tripp ’05.
