Course Information

Administrative Law (Limited)

This is the basic course on the law that governs federal administrative agencies. It covers material that is essential for anyone who represents a regulated party or works for a regulatory agency. The main topics are agency action and judicial review under the Administrative Procedure Act and the Constitution, the due process revolution in administrative law, access to courts (standing, reviewability, etc.) and government transparency under the Freedom of Information Act. The course builds on the first year Regulatory State course, but doesn’t duplicate it. Note: Due to overlap in content, students who enroll in this course will not be eligible to take the Administrative Law course. Enrollment Limited. [3]
