Administrative Law

B713 is taught by N. Almendares, Aman, Craig, L. Rookard

Bureaucratic policymaking is the hallmark of modern American government. This course studies the law related to that policymaking, that is, the actions of government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Since there are a variety of administrative agencies the legal and constitutional rules focus on what is permissible; administrative law sets the boundaries. Key issues in the course are the separation of powers, due process, judicial review of agency action, and standing. Assessment will be through an exam.
