Clarifying Statutory Access to Judicial Review of Agency Action

This project considers whether Congress should enact a cross-cutting statute that addresses certain recurring technical problems in statutory provisions governing judicial review of agency action that may cause unfairness, inefficiency, or unnecessary litigation. It will also consider how any such statute should be drafted. The project draws in large part upon ACUS’s forthcoming Sourcebook of Federal Judicial Review Statutes, which analyzes the provisions in the U.S. Code governing judicial review of rules and adjudicative orders and identifies recurring drafting problems in them.
