  • Description: This efficient and concise Guide explains complex Administrative Law concepts in accessible language without sacrificing the nuance that distinguishes a superior exam performance from an average one. It follows a logical sequence of topics used by many professors in their classes, starting with the constitutional foundations of the administrative state, continuing through the procedural requirements for agency rulemaking and adjudication, then the rules governing judicial review of agency action, and concluding with agency control over information.

    The Guide’s treatment of each major topic concludes with “The Takeaway”: a set of bullet points that succinctly summarizes the main issues that topic addresses. In turn, each topic is broken down into chapters, each of which concluding with “The Short Version”: a very short statement of the basic lessons that chapter teaches. These summaries provide quick and easy access to the main points of administrative law, to assist the student preparing both for each class session and for the final exam. This Guide thus can help students at all stages of their encounter with Administrative Law, from the very first day of the class to the night before the final exam.
