LAW - 881 Advanced Problems in Administrative Law and Regulatory Policy

(2 hrs.)

Combines a focus on advanced doctrinal issues in administrative law with a semester-long problem devoted to writing, commenting on, and presenting oral argument about a major proposed rule. Topics to be addressed include regulatory reform (role of the White House and Congressional initiatives), innovative regulatory approaches, negotiated rule making, cost-benefit analysis and risk assessment, the role of administrative law judges, the controversy over courts’ reliance on legislative history, the need for specialized courses for review of agency action, and openness statutes.
