It will cover such topics as congressional oversight and lawmaking, nominations, setting law and legal policy for the Executive Branch, the Administrative Procedure Act and other major statutes, and the roles of the media, public interest groups, lobbyists, ethics requirements, and money. This course is offered only in the Fall semester. Students may write longer papers and expand the two credit course to three or four credits with the approval of the professor.
