    The last decade has witnessed a number of emergencies requiring urgent governmental response, ranging from the national security emergency spawned by September 11th to Hurricane Katrina to the recent financial crisis.  Longer-term crises, such as the problem of global climate change, are also triggering governmental intervention.  This panel will focus on the implications of such emergencies for administrative law and administrative governance, considering their impact from practical, theoretical, legal, and institutional perspectives.   How do government agencies respond to emergencies?  How do emergencies alter legal controls on government, the form of regulation, or agency structure? Are there any generalizable lessons about effective methods of emergency governance or how the phenomenon of emergency governance should be addressed?
