Administrative law has never been more central to understanding US governance. It covers the study of the laws, doctrines, and structures that govern the executive branch in the modern administrative state, including relations with Congress and the courts, processes that structure agency decision making, and mechanisms for public participation in administrative governance.

The course is a keystone for the study of regulation and governance across substantive areas, including environmental law, immigration, financial regulation, national security, health care, food and drugs, and telecommunications.

Drawing on examples from these and other subject areas, we will consider topics including the structure of administrative agencies and their place in a governing scheme of separated but overlapping powers; the powers of the president and the role of Congressional oversight; delegation of authority to agencies; types and requirements of agency decision-making; ways in which attorneys attempt to influence agency decision-making, transparency requirements for agencies; and judicial review of agency decision-making.
