A study of the administrative law process, concentrating upon the functions and procedures of federal administrative agencies and judicial review of agency actions. Specific topics will include the creation of agencies; their investigative, legislative, and adjudicatory power; and the control of agency action by the executive, legislative, and the judicial branches. Given the pervasive nature of government in our society, lawyers in virtually every type of practice deal with administrative agencies at the local, state, or federal level. Administrative law provides a framework to understand the basic administrative process and its control by the three branches of government.
