The Submerged Administrative State

The Submerged Administrative State



Professor Gabriel Scheffler from the University of Miami School of Law presented his work The Submerged Administrative State. The paper addresses the reputation crisis of the US government, attributing it to the public's unfamiliarity with the administrative state. It proposes to make administrative agencies more visible and comprehensible to rebuild trust in government.


Gabe Scheffler works primarily in the areas of health law and policy, administrative law, and regulatory policy. Prior to joining the Miami Law faculty, he was a Regulation Fellow with the Penn Program on Regulation at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as a Research Fellow with the Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School. Previously, he served as a Staff Economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers, where he worked on health care and labor market policy. He received his J.D. from Yale Law School and his A.B. from Harvard College.
