|Description||Introduces law and policymaking in the current administrative state, which often involves the intersection of constitutional law and federal and state statutory law.

Also examines the reasons for modern regulation, limits of regulation, and ways it can distort policy; the structure of the modern administrative state; and incentives that influence the behavior of regulators and the regulated. Also examines the legal rules (such as standards of deference) that structure the relationship between and among Congress, administrative agencies, and courts. Prereq.
