Same as LAW 379M, Legislative Oversight and Investigations.
This course examines the problems and issues that arise when state and federal legislative bodies exercise their power to conduct oversight and investigations of the public and private sector by focusing on the scope and nature of formal and informal processes such as oversight hearings, specialized studies, citizen and select study committees, legislative agency activity, subpenas and examinations, legislative review of administrative rules, and the removal of executive and judicial officers by the legislature. The course includes an examination of how legislative fact-finding compliments and collides with other law enforcement investigations and prosecutions and unique attorney-client privilege issues.
