how to split up/take "Admin Law" & "Federal Courts"

Postby uwb09 » Sun May 08, 2011 2:44 am

i'm guessing taking both of these in the same semester is amount to GPA suicide, should I take one before the other? should I wait till 3rd year to take them and combine them with internships/junk classes?

Ok, this is fair.

This makes me wonder what Admin Law actually covers, since I have yet to take it and might have missed out on something important.

hmmm, one of the professors I really like is teaching Federal Courts next spring, however all the Admin Law being taught next year are by profs I've had and hate, or profs I haven't had but have heard horror stories about. Looks like Admin might have to wait :?

Mine was about 50/50 split between the details of the Administrative Procedures Act and the Supreme Court's jurisprudence on what powers can be delegated to agencies, by who, how it can be done, and what powers the courts have to second-guess them.

It was painful, but not Fed Courts painful.
