For instructors who prefer a case approach, Administrative Law is a case-rich text with a focus on core issues in the law. Lightly edited cases preserve the feel of reading entire opinions and include facts, content, full analyses, and citations. Introductory material and questions following the cases focus students' reading and stimulate class discussion. Keystone cases introduce important themes and topics, and helpful notes facilitate keen understanding of legal doctrines. "Theory Applied" sections at the conclusion of major parts offer teachers a chance to evaluate students' grasp of the text materials in new legal contexts. This flexible, easily teachable text is designed for a 3-unit course, yet its self-contained parts can be taught in any order. The Third Edition includes as lead cases the recent Supreme Court decisions in Stern v. Marshall (2011), Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (2010), and Talk America, Inc. v. Michigan Bell Telephone Co. (2011). The book also includes National Cable & Telecommunications Ass'n v. Brand X Internet Services (2005) as a lead case, providing a capstone case for the standards of judicial review.
