Comparative Administrative Law (20517). 2 or 3 units. A seminar comparing the administrative law system of the United States with those in other parts of the world. The seminar will focus on the way statutory and constitutional law guides and constrains policymaking by government ministries and independent agencies, and it will consider the oversight role of the courts and other bodies. The course will compare the U.S. with the EU, France, Germany, and the U.K., and it will also examine administrative law in the transition to democracy in emerging economies and in non-democracies such as China. The particular comparative focus will depend on student background and interest. Prerequisite: One course on administrative law (either of the United States or of any other country.) Thus, LL.M. students are eligible if they have studied administrative law during their legal training. Bi-weekly reading responses and either a self-scheduled examination or a term paper. Three units of credit available for papers designed to earn Substantial Paper credit or for comparable papers by graduate students. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. Enrollment limited to fifteen. S. Rose-Ackerman.
