The Administrative Law course has never been more central to understanding what is happening in US governance.

Indeed, in the first month alone, we'll discuss (among other things): Whether Presidents can fire agency heads; the constitutionality of Acting AGs and agency heads; the Supreme Court's recent decision throwing out SEC Administrative Law judges; Justices Kavanaugh's and Gorsuch's evolving roles in the constriction of the Administrative State; the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; the viability of executive orders by the President; and the Supreme Court's Gundy decision addressing the constitutionality of the sex-offender registration statute.

The course covers the study of the laws, doctrines, and structures that govern the executive branch, including relations with Congress and the Courts, and the processes that structure decision making.

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