Can the Legislative Power be Delegated to the State?

Event description

  • Open to the public

Can the legislative power be delegated? Is the “major questions” doctrine” a suitable alternative to the non-delegation doctrine–the doctrine that states that a delegated power (and Congress’ powers are delegated from the people) cannot be re-delegated.  What are the implications of the dispute over the delegation of legislative power for constitutional good governance and the future of the administrative state?"

Join us for a debate between Professor James Stoner, Hermann Moyse, Jr., Professor and Director of the Eric Voegelin Institute in the Department of Political Science at Louisiana State University and Mr. Kannon Shanmugam, Chair of the Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group and managing partner of the Washington office of Paul, Weiss LLP on the subject of the delegation of the legislative power.

This debate is co-sponsored by the Center for Constitutional Design and the Federalist Society, Arizona State Student Chapter.

Join us to earn up to 1 hour of CLE credit!
