Administrative law is in profound transition, effecting both regulation and deregulation. The proper regulatory role of the federal government is the subject of serious debate, as are constitutional issues such as the non-delegation doctrine, separation of powers questions and the supervisory role of the executive branch. This treatise is comprehensive, covering adjudication; rulemaking; consistency in agency action; the Freedom of Information Act; and judicial, executive and legislative control of agency discretion. In addition, it deals with some relatively new topics such as alternative dispute resolution. This book will provide a comprehensive understanding of the field, enhance law student performance on exams, and also provide a useful guide for attorneys practicing in this area.
