Course Description:
Administrative agencies regulate the vast majority of our lives from birth to death (and taxes). They directly influence the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the land we live on, and the money we spend. While a course called “Administrative Agencies and Regulation” may not sound intriguing to the casual observer, we will spend the semester analyzing some of the most controversial issues of our time. We will begin with an accelerated introduction to federal administrative agencies, the sources and boundaries of their authority, and options for redress for parties aggrieved by administrative actions. We will also briefly examine state administrative agencies in the same light. We will apply the principals that we learn to in-depth analysis of a few modern administrative law controversies including, but not limited to the Federal Communications Commission and net neutrality and the controversies surrounding the Affordable Care Act. Throughout the course, we will apply the principals we learn to analysis of current events. The primary learning objective of the class is to provide you with the tools to analyze administrative agencies and their regulatory actions as they impact you in your life and career. While many of the topics we will address are politically charged, we will focus on a principled analysis of each topic without embracing or advocating a specific political or philosophical perspective.
