Administrative Law

Administrative Law builds on 1L Legislation and Regulation, digging deeper into the federal laws, rules, and norms governing administrative agencies, and examining the 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 prerequisites are 1L Legislation and Regulation and Constitutional Law.  There will be one writing assignment and one 3-hour exam at the end of the semester.
