This course will focus on the national regulatory regime and its impact of the other parts of the national government and on the people. We will begin with a general discussion of the role of regulation and administrative enforcement in our legal system and on the competing theories that explain the evolution and modern function of the administrative state. We will then focus on the relationship between the administrative state and the three main branches of government: legislative, executive and judicial; and on the impact of the administrative regulation in the people. We will close with a discussion of the extent of civil liability of governments and their officials in claims brought by private citizens.
