Your Top Ten List of California Administrative Law Reforms1

By Michael Asimow*

Professor Asimow engages participants with his keynote address on administrative law at the Administrative and Environmental Law Conference at U.C. Hastings on June 12, 2015.

California administrative law is completely unlike federal administrative law or the law of any other state. You’d have to think hard to find a single principle on which California law is the same as the law anyplace else. So it’s a good idea sometimes to ponder those differences and decide whether they make sense or whether we should rethink them—even if they’ve been with us for generations.
