Administrative Law

Administrative law is comprised of the regulations, rules, orders and opinions issued by administrative agencies.

Administrative agencies promulgate regulations to clarify how a law will be carried out and enforced. Regulations are published chronologically in a Register, and published by topic in a Code.

 Agency can have any or all of the powers of the three branches of governement.

  1.  Rulemaking
  2.  Judicial
  3.  Enforcement

This is determined by the agency's enabling legistation.

To find out what powers a particular agency has check out the government manual or the state equivalent.
