This 1-credit section of Administrative and Regulatory Law is intended specifically for students who are less familiar with the U.S. legal and political systems. We will touch on the fundamental areas of doctrine, with examples from a range of regulatory programs.

The central purpose of Administrative Law is to create and apply Rule of Law principles to decisionmaking in the executive branch using powers of regulation, adjudication, and enforcement assigned to agencies by statutes. Thus, Administrative Law is relevant to virtually every area of government action in domestic and economic matters. Courts apply Administrative Law to disputes about an agency’s substantive and procedural choices. Did the agency act within its statutory authority, using the procedures required by statute or the Constitution? Was the evidence sufficient? Was the agency arbitrary when exercising its discretion? Are the government’s actions procedurally fair, substantively sound, and democratically accountable?

Grading will be credit/no-credit based on class participation together with a take-home exam.
