    • 21601-01
    • Parrillo, Nicholas
    • Description changed to:
      Administrative Law (21601). 4 units. There are vast areas of life in which much (often most) lawmaking and legal interpretation fall to administrative agencies, rather than to legislators and judges. Examples include the functioning of markets in securities, telecommunications, and energy; the safety of food, drugs, cars, airplanes, and workplaces; the regulation of pollution, public land use, advertising, immigration, election campaigns, and union organizing; and the distribution of all kinds of social welfare benefits. This course will introduce the legal and practical foundations of the administrative state, considering rationales for delegation to administrative agencies, procedural and substantive constraints on agency rulemaking and adjudication, judicial review of agency actions, and the relationship of agencies to Congress and the President. Self-scheduled examination. N. Parrillo.

      Note: The self-scheduled examination for this course must be taken on a self-scheduled basis between Monday, May 4 and Friday, May 8. All exams must be completed and submitted by noon on Friday, May 8.

    • 21210-01
    • Gluck, Abbe
    • Description changed to:
      Federal Courts, the States, and the Federal System (21210). 4 units. This course will examine the relationship between federal courts and coordinate branches of the federal government; the interactions between state and federal courts; and the interplay of state and federal laws. We will explore vertical and horizontal separation of powers; how the power to make, interpret and enforce law is shared among the branches and between the federal and state governments; the theory and practice of federalism; and the jurisdiction, powers and limitations of the federal courts in our federal and federalist system. Note that this course will not focus on habeas or Native American law issues; students interested in those matters may wish to take the fall version of the course. Enrollment capped at eighty. Scheduled examination (web). A. Gluck.

      Note: Attendance at the first-class meeting is required to retain a place on the waiting list.
