On October 1, 2021, the Gray Center hosted a conference to mark the twentieth anniversary of Elena Kagan’s published article on “Presidential Administration,” where authors and scholars discussed and presented seven new working papers and two new books on this important and timely concept, during a series of panel discussions.

The third panel analyzed current issues in presidential administration and executive power. It included a discussion featuring The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania’s Brian Feinstein, University of California Hastings College of the Law’s Zachary Price, and Arizona State University’s Bijal Shah, which was moderated by The Ohio State University’s Christopher Walker.

Brian Feinstein’s working paper, co-authored with Abby Wood of the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, is available here: https://administrativestate.gmu.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/29/2021/09/Feinstein-Wood-Divided-Agencies.pdf
