Administrative Law: A Lifecycle Approach

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


At its core, administrative law is a process-driven course. Nevertheless, traditional casebooks are organized around legal concepts and doctrines rather than the basic stages of administrative decision-making. This casebook improves on the traditional model by following the major steps in the administrative process, thereby providing students with ample grounding in the law and practice governing it. In addition to featuring seminal administrative law decisions, Administrative Law: A Lifecycle Approach incorporates a variety of agency-oriented materials—government reports, charts, diagrams, orders—that give students a fuller sense of how the administrative state’s organization and operations. These carefully edited materials model how skilled jurists and administrative lawyers go about their work, how legal problems with that work arise, and how administrative, judicial, and political processes have developed to address them. Critically, this casebook also provides numerous opportunities for guided review, synthesis, analysis, and application of salient legal concepts to facilitate student learning. Dozens of questions, as many or more than any other casebook on the market, place students in the position of lawyers tasked with navigating the administrative landscape.
