Administrative Law

Law 220






This course explores the central role of federal agencies in the development and implementation of public policy in the modern regulatory state.  We will examine the constitutional relationship between agencies and the President, Congress, and federal courts; the mechanisms employed by agencies to develop and implement policy; and the constitutional, statutory, political, and practical constraints to agency decision-making.  Major topics include: separation-of-powers; procedural due process; forms of agency decision-making (e.g., rulemaking, adjudication); and judicial review over agency action.
