The 2009 Administrative Law Conference starts today at the
Second, in the afternoon at 2 pm is a panel organized by Trevor Potter entitled “What’s Next for Lobbying Regulation?” Charles Fried (Harvard Law School), Melanie Sloan (CREW), and Nick Allard (Patton Boggs) will discuss the ABA’s new Task Force on Lobbying Regulation, proposals for new lobbying regulations and the constitutional issues associated with current and proposed lobbying restrictions.
Both of these panels are co-sponsored by the D.C. Bar Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section, which I co-chair, and its Legislative Practice Committee.
Finally, between the two panels will be a luncheon presentation by Norm Eisen, White House Special Counsel for Ethics and Government Reform.
All of which should be very interesting to those who follow this area.
