Government agencies play a key role in shaping the law across a broad range of substantive areas, from regulating the offering of securities by a corporation to establishing an individual's eligibility for government benefits. In fact, there are few areas of practice that do not require an understanding of the scope and impact of government regulations.

Administrative Law is the fundamental course within this area of study. Administrative Law examines agency authority to promulgate binding regulations and the process used in their creation. It also considers the significant constitutional issues raised by agency power, such as due process and monitoring by Congress, the President and the Courts. Because questions relating to government rulemaking and regulations arise in so many areas of law, all students are encouraged to take the basic introductory course in Administrative Law. Courses taught in specific substantive areas, such as antitrust, environmental law and labor law, also examine principles of government regulation and administrative law within the context of these particular fields.
