LAW - 788 Federal Regulatory Process

(3 hrs.)

An overview of the regulatory process of government administration, including the rationale for regulatory programs and reasons for ending or deregulating them, how and why Congress creates or abolishes agencies, how agencies administer their statutory programs, and alternatives to traditional regulations. Students are introduced to several government-wide procedural statutes, such as the Administrative Procedure Act and the Freedom of Information Act. A unique element of the course is the participation of more than 20 guest lecturers from the legislative and executive branches, trade associations, and the private and public interest bars. The practical aspects of the regulatory process are emphasized.
