Course Description:

Administrative agencies exercise government authority in areas as diverse as national security, environmental protection, and communications. This course focuses on federal administrative agencies, their constitutional and statutory structure, and their role in setting public policy across a wide range of domains. Topics will include the constitutional basis for, and limits on, agency power, the role of agencies in interpreting statutes, judicial review of agency action, executive oversight, and the procedures for agency rulemaking and adjudication. There will be a particular emphasis on the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the allocation of authority between courts, Congress, and agencies, presidential power and its limits, cost-benefit analysis, the substantive design of regulation, and the appropriate place of agencies in a pluralistic modern democracy.
