Welcome to Administrative Law. For Thursday’s class, please read pp. 1-12 and 703-12 of ASIMOW & LEVIN, STATE AND FEDERAL ADMINISTRATIVE LAW (3d ed. 2009). Please also read this article to prepare for our discussion of the problem on p. 12: New York Times, Useful Mutants Bred with Radiation. Note that pp. 703-12 are the first few sections of the federal Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the procedural statute that governs federal agencies. We’ll refer to the APA throughout the course, and we’ll read the second half excerpted in the book for next Tuesday. Try to get a sense for the types of procedures that agencies can handle.
