This book helps students learn how to think and act like administrative lawyers. The book's structure and contents reflect that most law school graduates do not become appellate judges; rather, most law school graduates have actual clients – either clients with matters before administrative agencies or clients who are themselves administrative agencies – on whose behalf they must identify the relevant law, learn the applicable agency procedures, and build a favorable record. The book begins by introducing the components of administrative law. Then it teaches students how to learn about an unfamiliar agency, how to analyze and research various types of agency action (e.g. agency rulemaking and adjudication), and how to obtain review of agency actions at the administrative and judicial levels. The book uses problems to provide a practitioner-focused approach to the subject. It also uses learning tools such as checklists and graphics. Of course, the book also includes excerpts of the major judicial opinions that make up the administrative-law canon.This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law & Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Development, Washburn University School of Law.

Workers' Compensation Law

A Context and Practice Casebook

Publisher: N.A

View: 6851

This book serves as the perfect marriage between workers¿ compensation theory and practice. While the book covers most of the traditional areas of workers¿ compensation doctrine, it also dwells at strategic points to reflect upon the letter of the law. It dares to question doctrine and¿more importantly¿encourages even the beginning student of workers¿ compensation to do more than passively receive rules. The author draws on his real world experience as a former injured worker and workers¿ compensation attorney, and supplements that experience with his theoretical perspective as a teacher and scholar of administrative and employment law. The student is guided through cases by the use of probing introductory questions, reflection sections at the conclusion of many of the cases, and running commentary and ¿interrogation¿ by way of text boxes at critical junctures in the cases. The student becomes acquainted with a fictional injured worker, Ann Smith, early in the book and has the opportunity to reflect upon legally significant developments as her case becomes increasingly complex. In the final, problem-solving chapter titled ¿In the Law Office,¿ students are introduced to materials from actual cases, demonstrating even more concretely how the principles they are learning are applied in practice. The resulting product is a natural fit with other titles in the Context and Practice Series. Students are introduced to a body of law through explicit engagement with it, and through exercises and commentary meant to refine their understanding through contextual interaction with black letter rules.

This authoritative casebook presents a comprehensive treatment of the doctrinal basis of administrative law that students need to know to practice competently and also a substantial development of the scholarly literature that has, from many perspectives, critiqued the existing law. The 11th edition continues the tradition of offering instructors a rich theoretical, historical and political context for the cases. At the same time, recognizing changing pedagogical demand, the book offers a leaner presentation of many topics and more cues for helping students navigate the book.

Agency Action in Legal Context

Publisher: Foundation Press

Category: Law

Page: 1115

The second edition of this innovative administrative law casebook retains and enhances its unique features: Focus on five representative agencies to provide students with a more holistic understanding of agencies and provide context. Use of a consistent unit design that maximizes student learning and facilitates the use of the book with a wide variety of teaching styles, including traditional methods and the "flipped" classroom. Incorporation of cutting-edge cases and problems that focus on the practical application of administrative law doctrines. By focusing on five important and representative agencies (the EPA, NLRB, SSA, IRS, and FCC), the book addresses two key problems for teaching and learning administrative law: (1) students' lack of familiarity with agencies and what they do; and (2) the difficulty of understanding new and different agencies and their organic statutes for each new administrative law case. Extended treatment of these five agencies, including one chapter for each agency that focuses on the use of a particular kind of agency action (rulemaking, policymaking adjudication, mass adjudication, informal action, and enforcement) provides students with a more complete picture of what agencies do and how they do it. Because the principal cases and problems involve the same five agencies throughout the book, the need to learn about new agencies and understand new organic statutes is greatly reduced, enabling students and teachers to focus on the administrative law issues in the cases. The book uses a consistent "unit" format throughout. Each unit covers a particular topic and includes (1) a clear and comprehensive discussion of the basic doctrine governing the topic; (2) a principal case or cases to illustrate the application of the doctrine and highlight key issues; (3) a discussion of related matters to explore additional issues and connections between topics; and (4) a detailed administrative law problem requiring the application of the doctrine in context. This unique structure and design facilitates the use of the book with a variety of teaching methods, including the Socratic method, lecture and discussion, and the problem method. Because it combines clear exposition, illustrative principal cases, and comprehensive problems, the book is also an ideal tool for teachers who want to flip their classrooms. This unit structure also enhances the flexibility of the book, allowing teachers to select topics for coverage and determine the depth of coverage they wish to provide. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to include the most recent Supreme Court decisions and cutting-edge court of appeals decisions, streamlined to reduce length and improve focus, and revised to enhance its effectiveness as a teaching and learning tool.

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.

The 6th Edition of this popular casebook has been revised as part of the Interactive Casebook Series and, like previous editions, focuses on real problems and real administrative practice. Problems serve as the primary pedagogical tool, including problems that do not involve courts. The book raises ethical issues distinctive to government lawyers, requires students to parse statutory and regulatory text in solving problems, and orients the course around administrative law practice rather than theory. While theory is not ignored, the book focuses on reality-based problems that put theory in context. It includes the most recent important Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals cases, including King v. Burwell, with its rejection of Chevron when a case involves interpretive questions of deep "economic and political significance"; Perez v. Mortgage Bankers Ass'n, which overruled the D.C. Circuit's Alaska Hunters line of cases; Lexmark International's attempt to clarify the meaning of prudential standing; Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, with its rejection of standing absent concrete injury to a person, even when a person's statutory right has been violated; and Corps of Engineers v. Hawkes' elaboration of the test for finality. In addition, the new edition joins the ranks of Interactive Casebooks, a new breed of casebook that features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, reference to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and provocative questions. A major distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an accompanying electronic version with the extensive hyperlinking to Westlaw versions of legal materials, Black's Law Dictionary definitions, supplementary online resources and more. The Sixth Edition utilizes the CasebookPlus(tm) platform, providing students with digital access to faculty-authored self-assessments that are keyed to the text.

Voting Rights and Election Law

Voting Rights and Election Law is a law school text book covering the law surrounding the electoral system. Coverage begins with voting qualifications and barriers to exercise of the franchise. The book covers the authority of the courts to remedy violations of the right to vote. Other topics include the One-Person/One Vote Doctrine under the Federal Constitution and the effects of the Voting Rights Act. The book also covers the role of political parties and term limits for federal and state office. Campaign finance and political speech each receive treatment. The book concludes with a chapter on methods for remedying errors in elections. In Chapter 1 students examine questions surrounding the constitutional right to vote and legislatures' power to restrict the classes of persons entitled to the franchise. The remainder of the text proceeds chronologically through the electoral process, from districting, with its issues of one person, one vote and the role of race under the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act; to the place of political parties in the electoral and constitutional structure; to limitations on ballot access; to the First Amendment's protection of political speech, including an in-depth treatment of campaign finance; to rules governing the voting process itself; to vote-counting; to remedies for elections that have gone wrong. Compared to other casebooks in the field, Voting Rights and Election Law emphasizes the texts of leading court opinions rather than commentary and political-science research. The book focuses on the legal principles and language adopted by courts in deciding election cases, rather than competing political theories about elections and democracy. Students are, however, encouraged through notes and questions to examine and question the empirical assumptions and theoretical premises behind the opinions.
