This course will explore the role of administrative agencies in the law. Building on the first-year course of “Legislation and Regulation,” it will address the Constitutional, theoretical, and practical relationships between agencies and the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. A good portion of the course will be dedicated to examining legal institutions for external review of agency action. But the course will also—and somewhat distinctively—address structures of internal agency decisionmaking, including through discussions of cost-benefit analysis and risk analysis.

Subject Areas: Government Structure & Function, Regulatory Law, Constitutional Law & Civil Rights
