Course Outline: Administrative agencies execute laws affecting almost every aspect of daily life—including regulating labor relations, setting tariff rates, issuing patents, and enforcing air pollution standards. This course does not focus on the substantive law of any particular agency; it instead covers principles and procedures common to all agencies, derived in large part from the U.S. Constitution and the Administrative Procedure Act. We will examine the sources of agency authority, the limitations on agency actions, the procedures that agencies must use in rule-making and adjudication, and the availability and scope of judicial review of agency actions.
