2013-2014 Jorde Symposium: Regulatory Agencies and Public Policy

On September 16, 2013, Professor Cass Sunstein, the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard Law School, presented a lecture for Berkeley Law’s Annual Jorde Symposium about the ways that regulatory agencies analyze the costs and benefits of public policies when such values are difficult to quantify.  Joining Professor Sunstein as commentators were Professors Dan Farber of Berkeley Law, Lisa Heinzerling of Georgetown University Law Center, and Richard Revesz of NYU School of Law.  The URL address below links to a full-length video of the Jorde Symposium proceedings.http://www.kaltura.com/tiny/0luqiThe annual Thomas M. Jorde Symposium was created in 1996 to promote top scholarly discourse and writing from a variety of perspectives on issues related to the legacy of former United States Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr.  The Brennan Center at NYU School of Law named the symposium in honor of its major benefactor, Thomas M. Jorde, a former clerk to Justice Brennan and a professor at Berkeley Law.  The Jorde Symposium address and commentaries are published annually in the California Law Review.
