Duke conference on internet and agency decisionmaking

Blogger-law professor Michael Froomkin will be up from Florida tomorrow for the Duke Law Journal Thirty-Fifth Annual Administrative Law Conference, along with others including Zephyr Teachout (a former editor-in-chief of the Duke Law Journal).

The goal of this conference will be to examine, from empirical, legal, and practical perspectives, the effect of the Internet on agency decisionmaking. Specifically, the conference will consider the following questions:
  • Is this another area in which the influence of the Internet has been overhyped?
  • Does the rise of the Internet pose new challenges and opportunities to public agencies?
  • Can the Internet help solve the collective action problem?
  • Do e-mail campaigns reflect true grassroots activism?
