Federal Administrative Procedure Sourcebook

The Federal Administrative Procedure Sourcebook is an annotated compilation of the key legal sources—including the Administrative Procedure Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Congressional Review Act, and executive orders—governing nearly every aspect of administrative procedure. The Sourcebook is a joint initiative with the Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice of the American Bar Association, which has published multiple print editions of the Sourcebook in past years.

In 2019, ACUS launched a continuously-updated electronic edition of the Sourcebook. The electronic edition provides ready-access to the Sourcebook’s statutory overviews and provides links to important resources, including statutory text, agency regulations, agency guidance documents, and law review articles. ACUS will continuously update the website to account for significant developments in administrative law and to provide access to new resources. The electronic edition provides expanded access to the Sourcebook and will assist agency officials, congressional staff, the judiciary, and the public with their research and understanding of administrative law.
