With the school year gearing up, I thought I’d do a few posts in this AdLaw Bridge Series about terrific new resources for law students, professors, and administrative law practitioners. The first is the Third Edition of Administrative Justice in the United States, by Peter Strauss.
Professor Strauss has long been one of my favorite scholars of administrative law and regulatory practice, so I was particularly excited to hear that he has released a third edition (fifteen years after the second edition was released) of this terrific book. As the book description explains, this book addresses “the issues of administrative law in ways that should be helpful both to foreign lawyers wishing a detailed introduction to American public law and to American lawyers and law students who must deal with the subject.” The latest edition covers developments in administrative law over the last fifteen years, “with particular attention to the impacts of the digital age.”
If the fact that Peter Strauss authored the book isn’t enough to draw your interest, check out Kevin Stack‘s glowing review:
Professor Strauss’s Third Edition of Administrative Justice is a marvelous achievement a master class in the law and structural principles that constitute our current government. One hears Professor Strauss’s voice throughout, wisely guiding the reader to see how public law structures and doctrines fit together and the tensions they hold. The book’s sweeping coverage combined with the extensive updating provides a comprehensive portrait of public law in the United States today and at the same time exposes the limits of law in structuring our government. The book will be an invaluable resource not only to scholars, students, and readers seeking to understand our administrative and constitutional law tradition, but also to comparative law scholars looking for a comprehensive and engaging account.
The book is available on Amazon here.
This post is part of the Administrative Law Bridge Series, which highlights terrific scholarship in administrative law and regulation to help bridge the gap between theory and practice in the regulatory state. The Series is further explained here, and all posts in the Series can be found here.
