[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Foundational Course : Most public interest lawyers will represent stakeholders and causes before administrative and other rule-making bodies as well as in the courtroom, so it is critical to have an understanding of relevant government processes in all three branches: the judicial, executive and legislative. Evidence, Administrative Law and Legislation together provide a framework for engaging these different branches of government. Whether a public interest lawyer works on behalf of an agency or represents a client suing the agency, it is important to know what and how the agency regulates, and how lawyers can most effectively interact with the agency. In addition to taking this overview course, students should take a course that examines a particular agency’s role and procedures, and considers the specific application of the doctrines of administrative law to that agency: e.g., Environmental Law, Immigration Law, or the FDA's Regulation of Health Care.
General course Description:
Administrative agencies interpret statutes, promulgate regulations, and adjudicate disputes, thereby affecting vast areas of life -- from employment to food and drug safety, from the environment to energy markets, and from telecommunications to immigration. This course surveys the law of the administrative state, considering rationales for delegation to administrative agencies, procedural and substantive constraints of agency decision-making, and the judicial review of agency actions.
Course Style: A Substantive/Statutory course deals with law, theory, and policy in the context of a particular code or statutory scheme.
Course Frequency: Offered twice a year
