Professor Freeman has written extensively about how presidents use executive power to make policy in the face of congressional inaction, and the ways in which presidents can unilaterally weaken or strengthen administrative agencies. Her work in this area includes a comprehensive historical account of climate policy at the Environmental Protection Agency over the last 50 years under several presidential administrations. She is a leading commentator on how climate and energy law and policy has changed drastically under Presidents Obama, Trump, and Biden, and the implications of these policy shifts for international climate agreements.
