Procedural Due Process in Administrative Law: Some Thoughts from the French Experience

As administrative law has grown so have the suggestions for change and reform. During the last thirty years a recurrent proposal has been that Congress create a federal administrative court. The first such bill was introduced in 1933 by Senator George Norris. In the same year the American Bar Association also championed the creation of such a court. Bills advocating an administrative court were again introduced in the Seventy-Fourth, Seventy-Fifth, and Seventy-Sixth Congress. The most recent proposal came in 1949. None were ever passed.
