Federal Administrative Law

Author: Gary Lawson
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 1634599071
Release Date: 2015-11-26

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.

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.

Administrative Law

Author: John H. Reese
Publisher: West Academic
ISBN: 0314263373
Release Date: 2003-01
Genre: Law

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.

In three parts a system of lawyers, a system of law, and a system of politics the book provides both historic perspective and a modern blueprint. Students will explore the meaning of rights and the ways in which movements and lawyers defend existing rights and mobilize for new rights claims. The second edition preserves the organization and coverage of the popular first edition, with new notes, citations to recent literature, and excerpts that address cutting edge issues. Revisions and additions include recent federal reforms that reduce the burden of student loan repayment, work toward a right to counsel in civil cases, "low bono" legal services, the economic crisis and recession, Hurricane Katrina, the impact of foreclosures on inner cities, and gains and challenges in the struggle for equality for sexual minorities.

Immigration and Citizenship

Author: Thomas Aleinikoff
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 1634599284
Release Date: 2016-08-01

The eighth edition of this pioneering casebook continues its tradition of comprehensive coverage, with problems and exercises that allow students to hone skills as counselors, as litigators, and as policy advisors. At the same time, the casebook helps students understand how immigration and citizenship law illuminates essential aspects of constitutional and administrative law and plays a key role in current political debates. This new edition is leaner, with significant reworking, thinning, and updating of core chapters on admissions categories, admission procedures, and removability. It also reflects the latest developments in federal enforcement, as well as state and local measures for both immigration enforcement and the integration of unauthorized migrants. The casebook incorporates important recent doctrinal changes, while trimming overall length.

Cases and Materials on Criminal Law

Author: Joshua Dressler
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 0314279822
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Law

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

Traditions and Change in European Administrative Law

Author: Roberto Caranta
Publisher: Apollo Books
ISBN: 9089520716
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Law

In Europe, the traditional continental administrative model is mainly top-down and is based on the following assumptions: a) Political bodies strike a balance among the conflicting interests present in the society or, rather, among the conflicting social interests, choosing those that deserve to gain the upper hand. b) The administrative organization has the task to implement the choices made by the law maker in specific cases and it is normally responsible to it. To this end, it works through adjudication processes and adopts decisions. Normally, to make adjudication more predictable and easier, given its complex structure, the administrative organization is also empowered to enact secondary rules. Rules and administrative decisions derive their legal authority from the law they are implementing, overriding individual interests. c) The courts are empowered to check that the administrative organization does not overstep the boundaries laid down by the law. * A different dialogue model is possible. It is based on the following assumptions: a) It is up to the different social actors to negotiate and find mutually acceptable compromises between conflicting interests. b) The administrative organization acts as a facilitator or broker of decisions, which are, to a more or less large extent, taken by the social actors. c) The courts check that all concerned social actors are allowed to take part in the dialogue and are fairly treated. * The research presented in this book classifies the European legal system according to the models outlined above, to their possible combinations, and to their variables.

The Health Care Revolution

Author: Carl F. Ameringer
Publisher: Univ of California Press
ISBN: 9780520934689
Release Date: 2008-04-09
Genre: Medical

America's market-based health care system, unique among the nations of the world, is in large part the product of an obscure, yet profound, revolution that overthrew the medical monopoly in the late 1970s. In this lucid, balanced account, Carl F. Ameringer tells how this revolution came into being when the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress prompted the antitrust agencies of the federal government—the Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department—to change the rules of the health care system. Ameringer lays out the key events that led up to this regime change; explores its broader social, political, and economic contexts; examines the views of both its proponents and opponents; and considers its current trajectory.

California Administrative Law

Author: Michael Asimow
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 0314263446
Release Date: 2002-01-01
Genre: Law

It is essential to cover California administrative law in an administrative law course in California. First, the clients of California lawyers are much more likely to have disputes with California state and local agencies than with federal agencies. Second, California administrative law is very different from federal law. In virtually every instance, these differences lie in the direction of protecting private business and individual interests rather than favoring the agencies. California Administrative Law is designed as a supplement to be used in the basic administrative law course. It could also be used as the text for an advanced course or seminar in California administrative law.
