Course Description:
This seminar will examine––from a constitutional and rule-of- law perspective––central features of the modern administrative state, including as characterized by some of its strongest critics. Are these features genuinely worrisome, or reflective of the avoidable complexity of governance? What forces have driven the evolution of the administrative state? And what have critics of relevant constitutional doctrine and administrative law gotten wrong? This seminar will require intense classroom participation and a final paper.
