ML: Navigating the Regulatory State (Petersen)
W 5:30PM - 8:15PM
Masters in Law
This course, which is designed for non-law students, will examine the fundamentals of administrative law. Administrative agencies formulate rules and regulations that dramatically impact American life. Are these agencies a practical necessity in today’s complex world or are they an increasingly inappropriate delegation of decision-making? By the end of the term, you will have an opinion on this question -- an opinion that will be informed by a detailed examination of the purpose of administrative agencies, the ways in which these agencies are created and structured, the processes they follow when they act, and the political and judicial controls to which they are subjected.
