Regulatory policymaking in the European Union and in its Member States is a fruitful subject for comparative law. American lawyers can gain perspective from studying European administrative law, and comparative administrative law is of increasing practical importance to firms that sell and manufacture in Europe.

When American law and practice are added to the mix, the result is an instructive canvass of present day options.
