About the Book
Administrative Law integrates doctrinal analysis and procedural rules with substantive policy areas to encourage students to see the relevance of administrative law in policy and contemporary politics. Eminently readable introductions, transitional text, and Notes and Questions—coupled with the authors’ engaging approach—have made this casebook a favorite with students and professors.
New co-author Jody Freeman ushers in the Sixth Edition with new materials on cooperative regulatory structures and alternative regulatory procedures. A host of updates include the separation of powers decision in Free Enterprise Fund; the global warming case, Massachusetts v. EPA; updated coverage of the Chevron doctrine; and enhanced coverage of arbitrary, capricious review.
