Administrative Law

Federal administrative law comes from the President, agencies of the executive branch, and independent regulatory agencies. The President issues executive orders, proclamations, and other documents. Executive and independent agencies issue rules and regulations that have the force of statutory law. In addition, agencies make administrative decisions that range from informal and private, to complex and on a full judicial scale. As a result, administrative law covers a wide variety of materials ranging from in-house memoranda to lengthy opinions written by administrative law judges.
