For courses in administrative law.

A plain-language survey of the laws governing administrative agencies
Administrative Law: Bureaucracy in a Democracy examines administrative law in the context of accountability and preventing governmental abuse of power. With thorough, yet accessible coverage, it looks at the authorities held by administrative agencies, how agencies are kept accountable, and the existing and potential constraints on agency authority, both constitutional and otherwise. In analyzing case excerpts, students learn to think critically about the issues and controversies of administrative law, while gaining practical insight they can apply as professionals. The 7th edition includes new laws and cases, and addresses contemporary challenges confronting the administrative state.

Author Biography

Daniel E. Hall, a native of Indiana, earned his bachelor’s degree at Indiana University, Juris Doctor at Washburn University, and Doctor of Education (higher education curriculum and instruction) at the University of Central Florida. Before joining the academy full time, he practiced law in both the United States and the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), where he clerked for the Supreme Court of the FSM and served as Assistant Attorney General of the FSM. He also clerked for Gene E. Brooks, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, and interned for Congressman Frank McCloskey and Robert Katzmann, JD, PhD, at the Brookings Institution.

Subsequent to leaving law practice, he has been on the faculty of the Department of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies at the University of Central Florida, the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Toledo, and the Department of Justice and Community Studies, Political Science, and Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University.

Dr. Hall is also a visiting professor of law at Sun Yat-sen University in China, and has taught as an adjunct instructor at the University of Evansville, College of Micronesia, and Barry University School of Law. He is the author or coauthor of 23 textbooks (first and subsequent editions) and more than a dozen journal articles on public law and related subjects. Daniel’s greatest joy is being father to Grace and Eva, partner to Aryana, and future stepfather to Thea.
