PADM 5133 - Law and Public Agency Decisions


     
Spring. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: EMPA students.

D. Manne.

As technology improves and global infrastructure grows in complexity and reach, government bureaucracies struggle to keep pace. Agencies must adopt and execute new policies while conforming their actions to the rules of law. Administrative decisions affect our daily lives in countless ways, including food safety, weather forecasting, internet speed and availability, and trash collection to name a few. This course takes a comparative approach, examining different countries’ methods for addressing the legal aspects of public administrative agencies with regard to their purpose, operation, rule-making, and ethics.

Outcome 1: Students will demonstrate understanding of the legal source of public agency authority.

Outcome 2: Students will demonstrate the ability to compare and contrast different approaches to regulatory enforcement and the source of legal authority required for each.

Outcome 3: Students will demonstrate the ability to spot legal and ethical issues, propose and analyze potential solutions, and provide the legal basis for their proposed policy.
