Administrative LawAdministrative Law is an introduction to the federal laws, rules, and norms governing administrative agencies, including those contained in the Constitution, executive orders, federal statutes (especially the Administrative Procedure Act), federal court decisions, and rules promulgated by the agencies themselves. We will consider how agencies promulgate public law within the context of these authorities, as well as the legal mechanisms by which each of the three branches of government attempt to control the work that agencies do. The Spring 2013 offering of the course is primarily for 3L and 3E/4E students for whom Legislation and Regulation, the new required 1L course, was never offered.
There will be two take-home assignments and one 3-hour exam at the end of the semester.
