LAW 5080 - Legislation and Regulation.


3 Credit Hours

Description
This is a first year required course. This course will provide students with a foundational and systematic introduction to the world of legislation, regulation, and administration that creates and defines so much of the contemporary legal order. As such, it is a natural statutory-regulatory complement to the first-year common-law courses. It will examine the way Congress and administrative agencies adopt binding rules of law (statutes and regulations, respectively) and the way that implementing institutions-courts and administrative agencies-interpret and apply these laws. It will also consider the justifications for modern regulation, the structure of the modern administrative state, the incentives that influence the behavior of the various actors, and the legal rules that help to structure the relationships among Congress, the agencies, and the courts.
