LAW200  A  ADMINISTRATIVE LAW

Course Description
This course introduces students to the federal administrative state—what some have called the “fourth branch” of government—and the law that governs it. Administrative agencies exert important and pervasive authority in the United States today. Examples include the functioning of markets in securities, telecommunications, and energy; the safety of food, drugs, cars, airplanes, and workplaces; the regulation of pollution, public land use, advertising, immigration, election campaigns, and union organizing; and the distribution of social welfare benefits. Topics that will be explored include the rationales for delegation to administrative agencies, procedural and substantive constraints on agency rulemaking and adjudication, judicial review of agency actions, and the relationship of agencies to Congress and the President
