About This Class
Administrative law is the law relating to administrative agencies, which almost every practicing lawyer encounters at one or more points in her career. This class focuses on federal agencies - what they are (executive or independent), what they do (adjudicate, regulate, or investigate), and what constrains their authority (the Constitution, Congress, and the judiciary). Lawyers who work for agencies, regulated industries, and public interest groups must understand these basic principles of administrative law. This course uses a problem focus to stress practical application of administrative law.
Method of evaluation: Final exam.
