The Administered Constitution – Administrative Tribunal’s & Agencies’ Critical Constitutional Role
September 18, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Professor Sophia Lee, University of Pennsylvania Law School
Administrative tribunals have historically played a primary role interpreting and applying the Constitution. However, this fundamental role is often underestimated, misunderstood, and overlooked. Some argue courts should more closely scrutinize administrative decisions. Others, that legislators should be more alert to the powers delegated to these bodies. Professor Sophia Lee will trace the history of ‘administrative constitutionalism’ in the US to emphasize the critical role and power of administrative tribunals as creators of constitutional meaning.
