The links below will take you to study aids and practice exams for the Administrative Law course. The study aids have been carefully selected and recommended for each course. The practice exams have not been. They are just a collection of exams I or others have found around the web. I tried to grab relatively recent exams and tried to pick only one or two from each professor.

Admin law is a tough course. Plan to study for this one a bit more than you do for most courses. There is a lot of material and a lot of it is made up of heavy, substantive analyes and conflicting rules. It takes quite a while to sort through.

As a result, I would recommend reading the Nutshell in addition to your cases. Going through the material just enough to get through class and then trying to summarize the cases for an outline is not enough for administrative law.

I would also suggest taking a slightly different approach to practice tests. For most courses, I recommend taking 2-3 timed full-length practice exams and then skimming the questions of a few more. For admin, I would recommend taking 2-3 full exams untimed first. Maybe if you have a practice exam that is meant to be 3 questions in 3 hours, do one question a night and spend 2-3 hours on each to really flesh out your stance on the various areas. Then switch to taking a couple of timed ones at the end, and skimming questions if you have time left. The reason I suggest that approach is that admin law is often more about working out a clever way to tackle some pretty murky law where in many other courses, it is more about getting things down on the page. Taking the time to sort out a position carefully in advance of the exam is quite helpful.
