Administrative Competence - Liz Fisher Book Cover
Administrative Competence: Reimagining Administrative Law (Cambridge University Press 2020)

Eliizabeth Fisher and Sidney Shapiro (Wake Forest) have just published this new book that reimagines US administrative law as the law of public administration by making its competence the focus of administrative law. Grounded in extensive interdisciplinary, historical, and doctrinal analysis, Fisher and Shapiro show why understanding both the capacity and authority of public administration is crucial to understanding administrative law. To address the current precarious state of administrative law, they support a new study of the administrative process by an Attorney General’s Committee on Administrative Procedure and argue for a revised Administrative Procedure Act (APA).
