The purpose of this course is to introduce students to lawmaking and statutory interpretation by courts and agencies. It will examine the way Congress adopts statutes and the way that courts and agencies interpret and apply statutes. The course will consider theories and tools of statutory interpretation, the structure of the modern administrative state, the incentives that influence the behavior of the various actors, and the legal rules that help to structure the relationship among Congress, the agencies, and the courts.
