Administrative and Regulatory State Clinic
The Administrative and Regulatory State Clinic, taught by Dean Revesz and Policy Integrity Executive Director Michael Livermore ’06, is now in its fifth semester. The 32 students who have completed the class has received an intense, hands-on legal experience working side by side with Policy Integrity lawyers to write public comments on agency rulemakings, file rulemaking petitions with regulatory agencies, and draft briefs and motions in administrative litigation. Submitting twenty-four sets of comments, the clinic students wasted no time applying their legal education to real world problems. Students submitted comments on rules with topics as diverse as stormwater controls and automobile fuel efficiency labels, helping to shape environmental rules with billions of dollars of economic impact and major effects on climate, public health, and marine ecosystems.
The clinic takes 8 students in each the fall and spring semesters.
