    Session Capacity: N/A

    Scholars of administrative law have recently begun to acknowledge, examine, and embrace “administrative constitutionalism”—the interpretation and implementation of constitutional meaning by administrative agencies. These scholars have been at the forefront of a broader call to study constitutional interpretation and meaning-making outside of the courts. Far less recent attention has been paid to “legislative constitutionalism”—the role of Congress in interpreting and abiding by the Constitution. This panel aims to reinvigorate a broader debate over the role of Congress in constitutional meaning-making, as well its role in imposing constitutional limits to the exercise of legislative powers and procedures. The panel also will address the urgency of legislative constitutionalism in an era of constitutional crisis, in particular any role Congress might play within our constitutional framework by enforcing constitutional tradition and norms.
