This is the basic body of statutes and doctrine intended to impose the Rule of Law on the ubiquitous public agencies that, while neither legislatures nor courts, behave somewhat like them. These agencies have authority delegated by Congress (or state legislature) to issue law-like regulations, to adjudicate claims and disputes, or both. This field can also be characterized as the law at the intersection of politics, policymaking, fairness and evidence. A major theme is control of federal agency decision making by judges, the White House, and Congress. We will consider literally dozens of policy areas, reflecting the range of governmental action found in any daily national newspaper. This section of Administrative Law differs from others only in emphases.
