In Honor of Peter L. Strauss


Peter L. Strauss, Betts Professor of Law

Versions of the following Essays were presented at a Symposium in Honor of Peter L. Strauss on April 24, 2015.

Professor Strauss is the Betts Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1971. In addition to his duties on the faculty, Professor Strauss has contributed greatly to the Columbia Law Review itself, publishing within its pages seminal pieces like “The Place of Agencies in Government: Separation of Powers and the Fourth Branch,” “One Hundred Fifty Cases a Year: Some Implications of the Supreme Court’s Limited Resources for Judicial Review of Agency Action,” and “‘Deference’ Is Too Confusing – Let’s Call Them ‘Chevron Space’ and ‘Skidmore Weight.’” The Review is thrilled to honor someone who has contributed so greatly to both legal academia and, perhaps more importantly, to the students at this school. We join our contributors in congratulating Professor Strauss on his long and distinguished career.

The Review thanks all those who worked to make this issue a reality, including the Center for Constitutional Governance and the Harold Leventhal Memorial Lecture Fund. In addition, the Review especially thanks Professor Gillian Metzger, without whose tireless efforts this Symposium would not have occurred.
