Public Administrative Law
Spring 2014 quarter
In a modern bureaucracy, a legislative body must delegate much of its rule-making authority to the agencies that serve its constituents. Agency regulations don’t sound very glamorous, but they dictate much of our life in civil society. Many activities of daily life, from driving to drinking water, are regulated in some way by agency rules. This course will explore administrative rule-making, including: how agencies get the authority to do what they do (i.e., constitutional law), how they make rules, the public’s role in the rule-making procedure, and how these rules are challenged. This course will also touch on areas of law most salient in public administration, such as the Public Records Act and ethics laws.
