This casebook emphasizes current doctrine and its historical evolution in exploring the four basic foundations of federal administrative law: separation of powers, statutorily- and constitutionally-required procedures for agency adjudication and rulemaking, scope of judicial review of agency action, and the availability and timing of judicial review. The book concentrates on federal rather than state administrative law in order to provide the fundamental knowledge and concepts necessary to understand the subject, on the belief that an understanding of federal law can be translated into other settings. The book also maintains the straightforward organization and don't-hide-the-ball presentation that has characterized the book since its inception. The Seventh Edition contains five new principal cases, eight major new note cases, ten shorter new note cases, and updated treatments of all major topics. It also includes a revised Chapter I that includes an extended treatment of statutory interpretation to accommodate the increasing inclusion of Administrative Law in the first-year curriculum.

State and Federal Administrative Law, Fourth Edition, contains thorough coverage of administrative law issues in both federal and state contexts. Although it can be used for a course that focuses primarily on federal law, its dual coverage allows instructors to highlight the insights that can emerge from a comparison between federal and state approaches to the same issues. The book exposes students to a broad sample of the federal, state, and local administrative agencies that they will encounter in their professional lives. The book also contains many short, concrete problems that enable instructors to make use of the problem method. A comprehensive teacher's manual accompanies the book.

This book is designed primarily to teach models for analyzing administrative law problems. The modeling approach helps students understand the big picture of administrative government. At the same time, it sensitizes them to the need for a flexible, context-specific analysis of agency powers and duties. The book is based on validated adult learning theory. As such, it emphasizes development of professional skills and perspectives. It encourages this development by, among other means, using multiple methods of presenting the material; relating the material to students prior experience, and explaining the relevance of the material to future legal practice. The book uses federal administrative law as the organizing principle, but it also includes compilations of citations for the corresponding administrative law of selected states.

This casebook is designed with an emphasis on accessibility, includes many discussion problems and questions focusing on real-world application, and gives students a solid grounding in the basic principles of administrative law that they might come across in regulatory practice. While it pays due attention to the historical evolution of the doctrine in certain areas, this casebook focuses more heavily on current standards. Administrative law as a subject matter encompasses some very interesting theoretical discussions. Rather than remain strictly theoretical to the point of bordering on encyclopedic, this book tends toward the more practical, while still including enough reference to theory to enable a professor who wants to introduce more theoretical discussion into the classroom to do so.

Using a case-oriented approach, the fourth edition of Administrative Law is a case-rich text that focuses on the core issues in administrative law. Lightly-edited cases preserve the feel of reading entire opinions and include facts, content, full analyses, and citations. Introductory material and questions following the cases focus students’ reading and stimulate class discussion. Keystone cases introduce important themes and topics, and helpful notes facilitate keen understanding of legal doctrines. “Theory Applied” sections at the conclusion of major parts offer teachers an opportunity to evaluate students’ grasp of the materials in new factual and legal contexts.

The Fourth Edition is updated to take account of new developments in the law, new regulations, and new cases. The most comprehensive updates are found in Chapter Four on the Clean Air Act and Chapter Five on the Clean Water Act. Chapter Four has been reorganized to provide professors and students with a new comprehensive section on climate change, including the EPA's many regulatory efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions from both mobile and stationary sources, critical U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and an overview of the Clean Power Plan, which is in litigation as the Fourth Edition goes to press. Chapter 5 includes a new approach to the "waters of the United States" element of Clean Water Act jurisdiction. This section now summarizes key U.S. Supreme Court interpretations from Riverside Bayview Homes, SWANCC, and Rapanos, then provides an overview of both the June 2015 "waters of the United States" rule and the litigation challenging that rule, emphasizing the key issues. Chapter Five now also includes an expanded discussion of stormwater and the two new U.S. Supreme Court cases on Clean Water Act jurisdiction over stormwater. As was true in the Third Edition, the Fourth Edition continues to increase the number of "The Rest of the Story" notes after cases. These notes trace the context and the aftermath of cases and their continuing implications. In addition, by Fall 2016, adopters of the Fourth Edition will have access to fully updated Power Point slides and a new Teachers Manual with links to videos and other teaching materials for use in class.
