About the Book

Written in an accessible, straightforward style, Administrative Law: A Casebook focuses on the basic principles of administrative law using a traditional cases-and-notes pedagogy, flexible organization, and examination-length problems at the end of each substantive chapter.

Look for these key features:
New leaner and slimmer edition of only 700-750 pages (approx. 100 fewer pages) that continues to preserve the successful approach of the late Bernard Schwartz, emphasizing the preparation of “practice-ready” administrative law students
New treatment of agency ethical rules and development of professional formation/identity for administrative law practitioners.
New and more integrated end-of-chapter problems.
Updated treatment of cost benefit analysis, presidential oversight, freedom of information, standing, agency deference (including the Brand X case), and rulemaking (including provisions of the 2012 Food & Drug Safety and Innovation Act, and the DC Circuit’s TSA body scanners case, EPIC v. US Dept. of Homeland Security).
New state cases and materials, including developments involving Florida’s APA, Whiley v. Scott (Fla), New Energy Economy v. Martinez (NM).
Treatment of new Supreme Court cases, including Stern v. Marshall, New Process Steel v. NLRB, FCC v. AT&T, Turner v. Rogers, US v. Home Concrete & Supply, and First American Financial v. Edwards. 
Comprehensive treatment of the evolving Supreme Court jurisprudence on Auer/Seminole Rock deference, including Christopher v. SmithKline Beecham, Talk America v. Michigan Bell Telephone, Chase Bank v. McCoy, and Mayo Foundation v. US. 
Updated Teacher’s Manual with materials on how to use the book to teach Administrative Law as a semester-long simulation.
