Contemporary Topics in Administrative Law (LAW-700C-001)
Students should have taken in Administrative Law. Students who have not taken Administrative Law but have taken the Public Law 1L elective may be admitted with consent of the Professor.
This 2-credit Seminar will survey 11 important and timely issues of administrative law—regulation, adjudication, rulemaking, and judicial review and the OSHA vaccination rule. To aid the class discussion of these topics, students (individually or in pairs) will be assigned a leadership role in class discussions of each of those topics in a point-counterpoint format. All students will provide a 2-4 page double-spaced paper giving their views on the topic by Saturday noon the following week. They will be returned with my marks in the following class. These papers and class participation will form the basis for the grade in this class. On April 21, our last class, you will be done--no exam, no long paper. I am amenable to supervising a ULWR if you want to expand a paper.
