Lawyers and judges across the United States have discovered that when it comes to administrative law, there is really only one authority: Administrative Law Treatise by Richard J. Pierce and Kristin E. Hickman.
Cited by the courts more than 4,000 times, this definitive three volume work now in its Sixth Edition brings you analysis of the latest developments with all the practical guidance and knowledge you need to plan and present an effective case before the courts. When your clients confront government administrative action whether it's rulemaking, adjudication, or investigation, do what your colleagues do: turn to the undisputed leader in the field. Richard J. Pierce and Kristin E. Hickman show you the most effective approaches to any agency action, policy or procedure. You'll get answers to such questions as:
- Which due process protections do individuals and companies enjoy under administrative law?
- What are the limits of an agency's power to subpoena, inspect, and gain access to records?
- When must an agency provide an oral evidentiary hearing?
- How and when are agencies likely to use their rulemaking power to resolve factual disputes?
The authors also provide a unique, in-depth treatment of agency discretionary power, especially in relation to evidence in oral hearings and other essential matters of practice. There's no need to look elsewhere for the law that governs such areas as:
- SEC rulemaking, Medicare and Medicaid
- Jurisdiction in telecommunications disputes
- Warrantless inspection of premises
- FOIA exemptions
- Agency power to make retroactive rules
- Immunity of agency employees
- Regulation of toxic substances in the workplace
- Allocation of gas and electric services
- Criteria for evidence of disability
- Control of regional transportation authorities
- INS deportation, and more.
Administrative Law Treatise, Sixth Edition, provides incomparable authority and guidance on the administrative law governing these and virtually every other significant agency power or procedure. If you practice before government agencies, act as agency counsel, or are connected with appeals involving agencies, you'll find that courts listen to Richard J. Pierce and Kristin E. Hickman.
