“Public Care in Public Law: Structure, Procedure, and Purpose," Blake Emerson (UCLA School of Law)
Guest Speaker: Blake Emerson, Assistant Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law
Blake Emerson is Assistant Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. Prior to joining UCLA Law, he was a Research Fellow at the Administrative Conference of the United States in Washington, D.C. His primary research interests lie in administrative law, executive power, and legal theory.
Emerson’s research examines the normative and historical foundations of American public law. He draws on resources from political theory and American political development to understand the structure and purpose of the regulatory state. He studies questions such as: What role have federal government agencies played in interpreting and implementing civil rights and other fundamental public values? How can legal doctrine ensure that agencies address such significant policy issues in a reasoned and inclusive fashion? In what ways have the diverse institutions of the American state realized, or failed to live up to, democratic principles? How can state action promote, rather than undermine, individual freedom?
