The Regulatory State, Third Edition is distinguished by a practical focus on how federal administrative agencies make decisions, how political institutions influence decisions, and how courts review those decisions. With coverage tailored to 1L or upper-level courses on the regulatory state or legislation and regulation, Bressman, Rubin, and Stack use primary source materials drawn from agency rules, adjudicatory orders, and guidance documents to show how lawyers engage agencies. Additionally, this book uses an accessible central example (auto safety) throughout to make the materials cohesive and accessible, and presents legislation with attention to modern developments in the legislative process. The Regulatory State, Third Edition also presents statutory interpretation in useful terms, highlighting the “tools” that courts employ as well as the theories that judges and scholars have offered.

New to the Third Edition:

  • Expanded discussion of agency methods of statutory implementation and regulatory interpretation
  • Additional primary source materials
  • Up-to-date examination of political and judicial control of agency action
  • New chapter with a case study of the regulatory process using the main example from the book

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Tools-based approach that highlights the methods of analysis that agencies, courts, and lawyers utilize
  • Use of an accessible central example as a familiar entry point into a complex legal area
  • Primary source materials—agency documents, including notice-and-comment rules, adjudicatory orders, agency guidance, and more
