Presidential Influence over Administrative Action: Recent Developments


November 12, 2010 | Fordham Law School

Contemporary presidents continue to experiment with both institutions and informal strategies in order effectively to influence or control agency action.  Nearly two years into the Obama Administration, it seems a propitious time to survey this field in light of both recent scholarship and recent developments -  including President Obama's substantial deployment of executive-branch czars, his interest in OIRA reform, and the appointments logjam.

Papers written in conjunction with this Symposium will be published in the May 2011 issue of the Fordham Law Review.
