Course Description

LAW 321 - Legislation and Regulation

Many of the rules that govern the modern legal order come from statutes enacted by legislatures and from regulations issued by administrative agencies. While most law school classes focus on case law, this course emphasizes the statutes and regulations that form the basis for much of legal practice. The class will explore the lawmaking functions of legislatures and agencies, as well as their interaction with the courts. Drawing on examples from a variety of substantive areas, the class will cover the legislative process, approaches to statutory interpretation, the allocation of authority between legislatures and agencies, various forms of agency action, and judicial review of agency decisions.
