Which is the most important branch of the US government? The legislature? The judiciary? Or is it the regulatory agencies that every year create twenty times as many binding laws as Congress passes? For the new Edward Shils professor of law and political science, Cary Coglianese, it’s this often- forgotten area of administrative and regulatory law that has become the battleground for many of our government’s most important decisions.

“Administrative law focuses on some of the most significant lawmaking and law-implementing bodies,” says Coglianese. “This so-called fourth branch of government is where a lot of the action is for public policymaking — and for making a huge impact on society, whether for good or ill.”
