The New Architecture of Public Law
Modern governments have greatly expanded the range of their activities and now assume responsibility for furthering economic and social development, managing the economy, and providing for the welfare of their citizens. For the purpose of promoting security, liberty, and prosperity, government has acquired a large and sophisticated administrative apparatus. With this growth in administrative power, the efficacy of constitutional checks is placed in question. This chapter examines legal and institutional responses to the establishment of administrative regimes of government — such as the emergence of administrative law and the rise of agencies — and considers the implications of these developments for conceptualizing public law today.
