Administrative Law 100-S2
December 22, 2013
This course is the “Civil Procedure” of the administrative state. Focusing primarily upon federal law and federal agencies, the course introduces students to the processes of law making and law application by the administrative agencies of the executive branch and their control by the federal courts, Congress, and the President. The course covers the basic tools used by agencies, such as rulemaking and adjudication, as well as the procedural and substantive rules that limit and guide the use of these tools. Special attention is given to the scope of judicial review, access to judicial review and a survey of the law affecting administrative agencies at the federal, state, and local levels. This survey includes constitutional law (the separation of powers, procedural due process, and freedom of information). In short, the study of administrative law focuses on the activities of government agencies—from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Social Security Administration, from the Federal Trade Commission to the National Labor Relations Board. The course is strongly recommended for students who intend to take Environmental Law.
