Administrative Law - Professor Bill Funk

  • Course Number: LAW-100
  • Course Type: Foundational
  • Credits: 3
  • Enrollment Limit: Determined by Registrar
  • Description: Administrative law is the law relating to administrative agencies. It includes constitutional law (especially separation of powers and procedural due process), Federal statutory law (especially the Administrative Procedure Act), and state statutory law (for example, Oregon’s Administrative Procedure Act). 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 validity of their actions depends on compliance with administrative law. Thus, lawyers for agencies, regulated industries, and public interest groups are vitally concerned with administrative law. Much of their practice both as litigants and advisors involves administrative law. Thirteen states, including Oregon, test Administrative Law on their bar exams. This course uses a problem orientation to stress practical application of administrative law.
