Product Description

This Understanding Administrative Law treatise helps both students and practitioners grasp the fundamental concepts of administrative law. It concentrates on the process of administrative decision-making rather than the substantive law of a particular agency. While the book discusses the major cases and statutes covered in law school casebooks, it goes beyond a mere academic treatment of the subject. The author conveys a real-world sense of administrative law by presenting how a client’s case moves through an agency and how a lawyer handles the various issues arising in administrative disputes. This text offers numerous suggestions on ways to identify and address administrative problems, and is therefore more helpful than commercial outlines and other study aids that merely paraphrase statutes or recite case holdings.

This text includes a significant amount of discussion on trends in administrative law such as deregulation and regulatory reform, and alternative dispute resolution. While the focus is on federal administrative decision-making, there is also some discussion of state administrative law.
