J.D. Course 025 | 3 credit hours
This course will consider the creation and control of the modern administrative state. Topics will include the nature and structure of administrative agencies and their place in a governing scheme of separated but overlapping powers; forms of and procedures for making administrative policy; administrative discretion and tools for shaping it; forms of agency oversight, including the availability and scope of judicial review of agency action; and relationships between administrative agencies and their constituents (the regulated community, interest groups and the broader public). We will also look at non-traditional approaches to regulation, including negotiation, privatization and self-regulation.
Students may not receive credit for both this course and Administrative Agencies, Congress, and the Federal Courts or the first year elective by the same name.
