About the Book

For instructors who prefer a case approach, Administrative Law is a case-rich text with a focus on core issues in the law. Lightly edited cases preserve the feel of reading entire opinions and include facts, content, full analyses, and citations. Introductory material and questions following the cases focus students’ reading and stimulate class discussion. Keystone cases introduce important themes and topics, and helpful notes facilitate keen understanding of legal doctrines. “Theory Applied” sections at the conclusion of major parts offer teachers a chance to evaluate students’ grasp of the text materials in new legal contexts. This flexible, easily teachable text is designed for a 3-unit course, yet its self-contained parts can be taught in any order. A robust Teacher’s Manual provides analyses of all the problems in the casebook.

The Third Edition includes as lead cases the recent Supreme Court decisions in Stern v. Marshall (2011), Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (2010), and Talk America, Inc. v. Michigan Bell Telephone Co. (2011). The book also includes National Cable & Telecommunications Ass'n v. Brand X Internet Services (2005) as a lead case, providing a capstone case for the standards of judicial review. Notes have been revised to address how the Obama Administration has employed presidential signing statements and revised Office of Management and Budget review of rulemaking. Throughout the text, questions and notes for students have been added to reflect the insights of decisions in recent cases, including American Elec. Power Co. v. Connecticut (2011); Milner v. Department of the Navy (2011); FCC v. Fox Television Stations, Inc. (2009); Mayo Foundation for Medical Educ. and Research v. United States (2011); New Process Steel v. N.L.R.B. (2010); Arizona Christian School Tuition Org. v. Winn (2011), and Thompson v. North American Stainless, LP (2011).
