This course provides a problem-oriented approach to understanding the administrative process and judicial review of agency decisions. The course includes a federal rulemaking problem through which students learn all aspects of planning for and participating in a rulemaking as well as use of the Freedom of Information Act to obtain relevant documents. The course also includes agency adjudication problems and appeals to the courts from agency decisions. Through these vehicles, students learn the traditional administrative law doctrines (exhaustion of administrative remedies, primary jurisdiction, scope and standards of judicial review, etc.) as well as the more practical skills of planning and executing a judicial appeal. This is a planning course and satisfactory completion of this course meets the writing requirement.
