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: As with law courses generally, enrollment for this course is limited by the capacity of the law school's largest classroom (150 students). In two previous instances, enrollment in this course was near that limit. If the number of students who express interest in this course exceeds that capacity, allocation of seats will take into account both the expressed weighted interest and the year in law school; seats on the waiting list will take into accout these same factors.
Note: Although the examination is self-scheduled, because of the expected size of the class, all examinations for this course must be submitted by 12:30 pm on Tuesday, May 9.
