Hester Peirce

Former Senior Research Fellow

Please join the Mercatus Center for Regulation University’s 2013 series. Hester Peirce, J.D., senior scholar the Mercatus Center, will discuss skills and tools essential to conducting regulatory oversight.

Several key debates this year will focus on the economic impact of federal regulations. The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is pleased to offer Regulation University, a series of educational programs designed for congressional staff to provide the skills and information essential to regulatory oversight and to understand the legal and institutional framework that produces and supports federal regulation.

Building from Regulatory Oversight Essentials, Part I, this program will review skills and tools relevant to congressional staff tasked with:

• Identifying and monitoring the efforts of those with a stake in a regulation in development by a federal agency

• Engaging in the debate for or against a change in federal regulation
