This paper in Spanish was published in El Derecho. It discusses the meaning and development of the rule that the United States Supreme Court announced in Chevron U.S.A. Inc. v. Natural Res. Def. Council, Inc., 467 U.S. 837 (1984), and the degree and manner of its adoption by Argentine courts. Although the Argentina Supreme Court has cited Chevron only once and that in a dissent, it has developed in some precedents a very similar type of deference, which the essay describes. American and Argentine administrative law, then, have both adopted Chevron’s principle, if not its name. Faced with a smaller administrative docket, the Argentine courts have not yet developed the doctrine in all its details, but they have so far made the same principle design choices.
