Administrative law establishes the legal controls over the operation of government and hence it relates to almost every legal practice -- from security regulation to social programs to criminal justice. This course is an introductory examination of the rules and procedures of government federal agencies. It explores: (1) the Constitutional background and limitations on agency action, (2) the procedural requirements (from various sources) that an agency must follow, and (3) the doctrines of judicial review that apply whenever a court evaluates agency decisions.

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