First Assignment for Administrative Law #221-02
Welcome to Administrative Law! This course provides essential elements of the future practitioner’s toolkit: students will gain an in-depth understanding of procedures and political structures that govern administrative agencies’ decisions. These agency decisions establish critical national policies in the United States and are of vital importance to multitudes of firms and individuals represented by lawyers.
For our first class, please read and be prepared to discuss the attached 5-page handout, which presents administrative law arguments both for and against the Trump Administration’s attempt to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. I am interested in your initial impressions — as students who have never taken administrative law — of issues presented by these stories. If you would like a bit more background, however, you may read pp. xxxi-xxxiv in the required text, which is Aman, Penniman, and Rookard’s Administrative Law and Process (4rd ed. 2020).
If you have any questions, please e-mail me at email@example.com. The syllabus is also posted for your review.
