Cuéllar's body of scholarship focuses broadly on public law, complex organizations, and political economy.  Addressing problems in administrative law and legislation, cyberlaw, public health and safety, international affairs, and the development and history of institutions, his interdisciplinary research examines how laws and policies change, how norms and institutions incorporate and respond to legal arrangements, and what government agencies do when they implement laws.  In the process, he explores how people and organizations endeavor and often struggle to reconcile aspirations for democratic responsiveness, technical expertise, and procedural fairness in an interdependent, politically complicated world.  His scholarship broadens our understanding of how societies seek to further ideals about how to govern, achieve justice and cross-border understanding, and educate the citizenry.
