The CIC is pleased to invite you to our co-sponsored program with the Project on Constitutional Originalism and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT) of the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law.

The focus of this panel discussion will be on “The Administrative Virtues,” which is also the title of CUA Law Professor Chad Squitieri’s forthcoming law review article, which proposes that administrative law can develop to incorporate insights from virtue ethics, similar to how administrative law has already developed to incorporate insights from the deontological and consequentialist perspectives. A shift to virtue ethics would call for a more central focus on the actors that exercise administrative power, rather than just the duties that might constrain those actors’ discretion (deontology) or the balancing of consequences that might flow from the actors’ proposed regulatory actions (consequentialism).

Judge Gregory G. Katsas will serve as this session’s moderator with former Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia and Notre Dame Law Professor Emily Bremer joining Professor Squitieri on the panel.
