Administrative Law & Government Regulation – Clinical Courses

Administrative law extends into nearly every aspect of modern life. It guides the regulation of labor, immigration, the environment, telecommunications, consumer, occupational, and health safety, national security initiatives, financial markets, taxation, and prisons. It also directs the eligibility and disbursement decisions of public benefits programs, including Social Security and Medicaid. Students studying in the area would explore the legal principles that undergird the administrative state, examining the sources of law for agency action and the ways in which the practical necessities of having an unelected, expert bureaucracy can be reconciled with commitment to a government that is democratically accountable and legitimate. Students studying Administrative Law would look to the Administrative Law course as the primary course in the area. There are a number of other courses, such as Federal Courts, that will be very helpful to students in understanding the legal system and how administrative law and agency rulemaking fits into that structure. The administrative law curriculum has a broad array of substantive courses in various subject areas of law that explore administrative rules and processes in the context of specific subject areas.
