The number of administrative law texts is vast. The approach of this one, now in its second edition, is simple. It is: (1) to focus on the richest and most canonical cases; (2) to provide more extensive extracts of them than most casebooks; and (3) to keep the notes to a bare minimum. This manuscript reflects the current state of the law as of February 2021, but also includes some older classics that many contemporary casebooks cut. The text includes older cases because they are foundational; because they frequently lay out core concepts clearly; and because arguments about historical practices and precedents currently enjoy substantial weight in administrative law discourse. Students whose knowledge of caselaw only goes back a couple of decades will be ill-equipped to make or parry arguments rooted in older legal developments.
