Is it Administrative Law?

Ask yourself: is an agency involved?

Hints that administrative law may be part of your research:

  • There is a statute involved
  • The topic is highly-regulated (e.g., food, banking, telecommunications)
  • There is a Board, Commission, Department, Bureau, or Office involved
  • There are adversarial hearings, but not in a traditional court
