This trusted text provides students who plan to enter government service and those engaged in mid-career education for public administration with a readable and interesting treatment of the field of administrative law, and more broadly of the range of public law that governs public management. The book is based on the premise that there is a complex, ongoing interaction between law and administration in the United States , and that administrative law problems are not only legal but also administrative and political. Recognizing that attacks on rules and administrative law processes over the last two decades have made this a difficult time for public managers and have resulted in a variety of new state and executive orders, the authors explain the sources, operation, and consequences of such changes. The book takes the role of public contracting seriously throughout and engages contemporary challenges that arise in governance, including in nonprofit and for-profit organizations working with government.

A comprehensive overview and resource for public administration students and practitioners. This book is a combination of an introduction to basic legal principles, analysis of excerpts from instructive cases, and practical advice. It is an original approach to learning about law for those who work for the public good, the culmination of more than twenty-five years of research, study, counseling, law reform work, and reflection on what the law is and should be and how this can be explained to any reasonably thoughtful person. The book combines substantive coverage of law subjects likely to be encountered in public administration, analysis of illustrative cases, and practical advice. It distills and simplifies complex topics and combines legal theory with practical realities. The book describes the general nature of the laws, cases, and legal principles that public administrators are most likely to encounter. It begins by considering the sources of rules that govern our behavior, the evolution of formal law, and formal sources of law in the United States legal system. The next several chapters discuss constitutional law principles, providing an overview of important issues and analyzing important illustrative cases. The next several chapters follow a similar approach to the main law subjects likely to be encountered in public administration. The remaining chapters cover practical matters, including public ethics, how to deal with lawyers, and how to do legal research.

This book focuses on the essentials that public managers should know about administrative law—why we have administrative law, the constitutional constraints on public administration, and administrative law’s frameworks for rulemaking, adjudication, enforcement, transparency, and judicial and legislative review. Rosenbloom views administrative law from the perspectives of administrative practice, rather than lawyering with an emphasis on how various administrative law provisions promote their underlying goal of improving the fit between public administration and U.S. democratic-constitutionalism. Organized around federal administrative law, the book explains the essentials of administrative law clearly and accurately, in non-technical terms, and with sufficient depth to provide readers with a sophisticated, lasting understanding of the subject matter.
