I. INTRODUCTION
Just over thirty years ago, I was a student in Kenneth Culp Davis's
class in Administrative Law at the University of Chicago Law School.
Davis's casebook and teaching style exemplified an approach that many
law professors of today would consider too didactic. Every chapter of
the book offered generous servings of Davis's own teachings, along with

appreciate helpful comments received from Christopher Bracey, Kathleen Brickey,
Richard J. Pierce, Jr., Reuel Schiller, Peter L. Strauss, and participants in the Third
Administrative Law Discussion Forum held at the University of San Diego School of
Law on May 1, 2004.
