As part of the UNC School of Law Summer Spotlight series, we are proud to present Hot Topics in the Law: Remedial Chevron, a conversation with Professor Andrew Hessick.

Hessick, who joined the Carolina Law faculty in 2016, will speak on his paper Remedial Chevron. The Chevron Doctrine, a prominent feature of administrative law since 1984 -which requires courts to give broad deference to federal agencies - may be nearing the end of its existence, at least in its current form. “When doctrine conflicts with law, two general choices are available,” Hessick writes. “One is to come up with a new rationale for the doctrine that avoids the legal objections. The other, which I propose, is to change the doctrine to avoid the legal shortcomings.”

This gathering, in addition to showcasing the scholarship of one of Carolina Law’s distinguished faculty, provides a unique opportunity to connect local alumni with current students working in Charlotte over the summer, as well as admitted students in the area. Our programs thrive on the prominent presence of our alumni to provide advice and support to 1L and 2L summer associates and help the law school recruit the incoming class of 2021. We hope that you will join us for this informative presentation, and to show your support for Carolina Law.
