Legislation and Regulation materials

Postby shock259 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:35 pm

My school is adding Legislation and Regulation to the 1L curriculum this fall. It's never been taught here before. It doesn't look like there are any supplements available for the course. I know the course was only introduced a few years ago, but are there any helpful resources anywhere? I'm thinking outlines/notes/something.

Many thanks!

I'm not sure how similar your Leg Reg will be to other schools', but in my experience for the Reg part at least your best bet will be Admin Law supplements. Also, there may actually be casenotes keyed to your textbook (if you use one). But as far as outlines and notes, you're probably going to be on your own. IMO, you'll waste your time trying to figure out the outlines from some other school's Leg Reg course - instead, invest your time in making some good friends in your section so that you can have a good study group that is willing to share notes and outlines. Good luck!

William Eskridge's Legislation & Statutory Interpretation isn't bad (Concepts & Insights) -- not very in-depth, but it covers some key concepts.

If you're using Manning's textbook the notes after each case are practically a supplement by themselves, very straightforward. I personally don't think you need anything else, especially because the class is new enough that there isn't a "go-to" supp. available, so it's a crapshoot whether or not anything you buy is going to be helpful at all.
