Administrative Law

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

Bureaucratic policymaking is the hallmark of modern American government. This course studies the law related to that policymaking, that is, the law of government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and so forth. The course focuses on what is legally and constitutionally permissible; administrative law sets the boundaries on what agencies can and can t do. Key issues in the course are the separation of powers, due process, judicial review of agency action, and standing. Assessment will be through an in-class exam.
