In the Boston Bar Journal’s Summer 2017 (Volume 61, Number 3) issue, Sugarman Rogers attorney Kate R. Cook and Hemenway and Barnes attorney Patrick Moore take a look at Executive Orders in their Legal Analysis entitled “Executive Order: Strike of a Pen, Law of the Land?

An excerpt:

The President of the United States and the Governor of Massachusetts have the implied power to issue executive orders that, in certain contexts, will have the force of law. Focusing on the federal system and the Massachusetts state system, this article will address the concept of the executive order, how it has changed over time, and why executive orders are used to further wide-ranging policy goals. The article will also address the judicial scrutiny of executive orders, including, in particular, whether they are owed any deference or presumption of lawfulness.
