International Regulatory Cooperation — Washington, DC, March 21, 2013

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The Administrative Law Review and the United States Chamber of Commerce will co-host a symposium related to International Regulatory Cooperation March 21, 2013, at the United States Chamber of Commerce Building. The submission deadline for presenting a paper at the symposium is Oct. 31, 2012. The submission deadline for the published symposium is Dec. 15, 2012.

The topic of the symposium relates to cooperation amongst United States agencies and their overseas counterparts, which has received significant
attention in recent months in light of the issuance of Executive Order 13609, Administrative Conference Recommendation 2011-6, and an ABA resolutionurging regulatory cooperation with relevant foreign authorities.The symposium seeks to explore the theoretical issues underlying the international harmonization of regulatory approaches and cooperation between United States agencies and their overseas counterparts. Potential topics include:

  • A comparative analysis of the principles underlying the regulatory systems of the United States, European Union, and other nations
  • An examination of legal barriers that preclude United States agencies from pursuing international regulatory cooperation
  • How multilateral or bilateral international obligations (e.g. regulations and oversight related to financial instruments or accounting practices) will facilitate/hinder cooperation efforts
  • Any other topic that bears upon international coordination amongst agencies

The Administrative Law Review will accept both proposals for presentations at the March 2013 symposium and articles for publication in the law journal. Scholars may submit a presentation topic without a related journal article or submit a journal article without speaking at the symposium, and selection of a presentation proposal does not guarantee publication of any
associated article.

Symposium presentation proposals should consist of a 3-5 page outline of the proposed presentation and must be submitted by October 31, 2012, for consideration. Articles must be submitted by December 15, 2012 to be considered for publication in the June 2013 issue
of the Administrative Law Review. Scholars interested both in participating in the symposium and submitting an associated article may submit the article in lieu of a formal presentation outline.

Should you have any questions about the symposium, please do not hesitate to contact Erica Lynn Tokar (, the Administrative Law Review’s Symposium Editor, or Adam Schlosser (, who is coordinating the event on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce. If you have any questions related to publication in the Administrative Law Review, please contact Editor-in-Chief Melissa Lim (
