Abstract

In this contribution to a symposium on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Administrative Conference of the United States, Professor Pierce describes the many ways in which ACUS has contributed to empiricism in administrative law scholarship. He then illustrates the value of empirical research by describing the studies that have found that notice and comment rulemaking is systemically biased in favor of regulated firms.
