This guide is for PSCI 4490: Policymaking Process.

What is Administrative Law?

Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government. Government agency action can include rule making, adjudication, or the enforcement of a specific regulatory agenda. Administrative law is considered a branch of public law. 

The "Administrative Law" and "Administrative Procedure Act" pages from Wikipedia provide an overview of administrative law and the US and other countries organize their administrative and civil courts that oversee administrative law cases. This page presents an overview only and is not intended for research processes, but as a starting point to explore administrative law.
