Each semester this course focuses on a series of Special Topics in Administrative Law. Special Topics are those that address emerging issues, current developments, and issues of particular interest that require greater in-depth analyses and discussion. Accordingly, a portion of the subject matter covered in this course will vary from year to year. Topics covered previously have included: Oversight and Independent Investigations; Presidential Power, Executive Orders, National Emergencies & States of Exception; Government Benefits and the Termination of Benefits; Access to Justice; Structural Reform; and Executive Privilege. Through deep analyses of these Special Topics, students will gain a greater understanding of the laws and doctrines governing the administrative practices of federal government agencies and judicial review. This course satisfies the Upper Division Writing Requirement.
