Section 003, Spring 2019
Section Description Provided by Instructor
This course is designed to introduce students to the principal political institutions that make national public law, how they function, and the outputs they produce. Students are introduced to Congress, federal agencies (with attention to the President and executive branch generally), the processes they use for lawmaking, and the interpretation of the resulting statutes and regulations. The course is intended to provide the kind of foundation for the study of legislation and regulation that Civil Procedure provides for the study of courts and adjudication. “Leg-Reg” is a graduation requirement for all classes beginning with the class of 2021, meaning all students must take the course sometime before they graduate. For classes beginning with the class of 2021, it will be a prerequisite for taking Administrative Law (it is not a prerequisite for earlier classes). To the extent enrollment permits, the 2019 and 2020 offerings are open to upperclass and L.L. M. students.
