This casebook is intended to be used as a supplement by teachers of administrative law at California law schools in conjunction with one of the regular administrative law casebooks. The vast majority of students at California law schools will practice in that state. California administrative law varies dramatically from federal law and the law of other states. Its law relating to rulemaking, adjudication, and judicial review is skewed in the direction of protecting private interests and contains many statutory provisions and case law doctrines of great value to private practitioners. The authors believe that a study of California administrative law will add significant value to a course which otherwise dwells on federal law. This book (and the accompanying teacher's manual) is designed to make it easy for instructors to supplement the basic course with whatever amount of California material they find interesting and helpful.
