The series focuses on the Court’s significant rulings on important administrative and regulatory law issues, including student loan forgiveness, racial diversity in college admissions, and the authority of agencies to make regulatory decisions. In addition, the essays delve into the Court’s broader approach to administrative governance and its potential implications for the future of regulatory authority.
