Funk, Weaver, and Shapiro's Administrative Procedure and Practice: A Contemporary Approach, 6th
William F. Funk, Russell L. Weaver, Sidney A. Shapiro
The 6th Edition of this popular casebook has been revised as part of the Interactive Casebook Series and, like previous editions, focuses on real problems and real administrative practice. Problems serve as the primary pedagogical tool, including problems that do not involve courts. The book raises ethical issues distinctive to government lawyers, requires students to parse statutory and regulatory text in solving problems, and orients the course around administrative law practice rather than theory. While theory is not ignored, the book focuses on reality-based problems that put theory in context. It includes the most recent important Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals cases, including King v. Burwell, with its rejection of Chevron when a case involves interpretive questions of deep “economic and political significance”; Perez v. Mortgage Bankers Ass'n, which overruled the D.C. Circuit's Alaska Hunters line of cases; Lexmark International's attempt to clarify the meaning of prudential standing; Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, with its rejection of standing absent concrete injury to a person, even when a person's statutory right has been violated; and Corps of Engineers v. Hawkes' elaboration of the test for finality.
In addition, the new edition joins the ranks of Interactive Casebooks, a new breed of casebook that features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, reference to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and provocative questions. A major distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an accompanying electronic version with the extensive hyperlinking to Westlaw versions of legal materials, Black's Law Dictionary definitions, supplementary online resources and more.
The Sixth Edition utilizes the CasebookPlus™ platform. Anchored by faculty-authored self-assessments, CasebookPlus allows students to test their understanding of core concepts as they are learning them in class with quizzes keyed to each chapter, subject area review quizzes, and helpful explanations from the Hornbook Series®.
