The ninth edition of this classic casebook Administrative Law and Regulatory Policy: Problems, Text, and Cases is streamlined and updated while retaining the previous editions’ rigor, comprehensiveness, and contextual approach.

Outstanding authorship, rich and varied materials, and comprehensive coverage remain the hallmarks of the ninth edition of the acclaimed Administrative Law and Regulatory Policy: Problems, Text, and Cases. Administrative procedure is examined in the context of substantive policy debates regarding regulation in a wide range of areas. Extensive notes, questions, and problems support thoughtful reading and analysis. The presentation acknowledges complexity and contradictions in the material while still providing explanations and guideposts along the way. Problems interspersed throughout provide an opportunity to explore the doctrine in more depth and test one’s understanding of it.

New to the Ninth Edition:
  • A thorough updating of cases, notes, and questions
  • A more streamlined and user-friendly presentation. Despite significant additions, the 9th edition is shorter than the 8th.
  • Inclusion of important recent judicial decisions, including
    • Gundy v. United States, 139 S. Ct. 2116 (2019) (nondelegation)
    • Lucia v. SEC, 138 S. Ct. 2044 (2018) (officers of the U.S.)
    • Seila Law LLC v. CFPB, 140 S. Ct. 2183 (2020) (president’s removal authority)
    • Oil States Energy Services, LLC v. Greene’s Energy Group, LLC, 138 S. Ct. 1365 (2018) (agency adjudication)
