Section to Meet in Washington
Program on Independent
Agencies Planned
The next meeting of the Section of Administrative
Law and Regulatory Practice will take place at the
law firm of Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering in Washing-
ton, D.C., from Friday, October 14, through Sunday,
October 16. All members of the Section are encour-
aged to atten d.
The Section Council will meet on Saturday and
Sunday mornings, while a number of the Section's
committees will meet Friday morning. The major so-
cial event will be a cocktail reception on Saturday
night, 6-8 p.m.
Several substantive programs are planned, many
of them-in light of the meeting's location-related
to federal regulatory practice. The first, to be offered
Thursday evening, October 13, from 6 to 8 p.m., is
entitled Electronic Hors d'Oeuvres. Sponsored by
the Section in cooperation with the District of Co-
lumbia Bar and the ABA Economics of Law Practice
Section, the program will examine various applica-
tions of computer technology to administrative law
practice; a champagne reception is included in the
$25 registration fee. Further information is available
from David R. Johnson at Wilmer, Cutler & Picker-
ing (202/663-6722).
On Friday afternoon, the Section will offer a pro-
gram on Independent Agencies: Independent from
Whom?-which will explore not only the relation-
ship between independent agencies and the execu-
tive branch, but also the relationship between the
agencies and Congress. Featured speakers include
James C. Miller, Director of the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget (and previously chairman of the
Federal Trade Commission); Congressman Edward
J. Markey (D-Mass.), Chairman of the Telecommun-
ications and Finance Subcommittee of the House
Committee on Energy and Commerce; R. GaulI Sil-
berman, Vice Chairman of the EEOC; and Joseph A.
Grundfest, Commissioner, Securities and Exchange
Commission. The program will begin at 2:00 p.m. at

SVaried Programs and
New Name Highlight
Toronto Section Meeting
The Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, was the
setting for the Section's own Annual Meeting, a va-
riety of programs sponsored by the Section, and nu-
merous opportunities for enjoying the city and the
fellowship of colleagues-including a cocktail recep-
tion hosted by the law firm of Stikeman, Elliott and
the Annual Section Dinner held at the prestigious
Albany Club. The Section emerged with a new name,
a new set of officers, and a renewed commitment to
serving its members. Section Chair Sally Katzen
noted that this commitment to serve all Section
members is reflected in the new title: Section of Ad-
ministrative Law and Regulatory Practice.
At Toronto, the breadth of members' interests
found expression in a variety of Section-sponsored
programs. Subjects included Canadian and U.S.
freedom of information laws, AIDS and the legal
system, the Canadian-U.S. Free Trade Agreement,
environmental aspects of road and rail construction,
real estate development and the balance of urban
power, the future of the AT&T consent decree, prod-
uct safety regulation in international trade, Canada-
U.S. energy trade, and programs on deregulation of
transportation and of financial services in Canada.
Elsewhere in this issue of the News are reports on
the Third Annual Scholarship Award announced at
the Annual Meeting of the Section, on actions taken
by the House of Delegates on six resolutions rec-
ommended by the Section, and on activities of the
AIDS Coordinating Committee.
