    • 10.1: Administrative Law
      Administrative law is also referred to as regulatory and public law. It is the law that is related to administrative agencies. Administrative agencies are established by statutes and governed by rules, regulations and orders, court decisions, judicial orders, and decisions.
    • 10.2: Regulatory Agencies
      The power of administrative agencies comes from the executive branch of the government. Congress passes laws to carry out specific directives. The passing of these laws often creates a need for a government agency that will implement and carry out these laws. The government is not able to perform the work itself or manage the employees who will do the work. Instead, it creates agencies to do this. Assigning this authority to agencies is called delegation.
