LAWS 8701 Administrative Practice (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course focuses upon the skills needed to practice law in front of administrative agencies. Much of law school focuses upon statutory interpretation and courtroom practice. But state and federal agencies make far more rules each year than legislatures, and adjudicate far more cases than the judiciary. Agencies develop much of the law that governs our daily life, including many high-profile issues such as immigration, financial reform, and environmental protection. In this course, you will learn about agency rulemaking and adjudication through simulated proceedings, which will culminate in each student filing comments in a live proceeding before a federal or state agency.
