Administrative Law is a text written for college students taking an introductory course in Administrative Law. The goal of the text is to take the mystery out of administrative law and is organized into three parts: creation of agencies, what agencies do, and how agencies are controlled. This organization brings clarity to the subject matter and allows students to focus on individual concepts while not losing sight of the big picture. The text uses a variety of practical examples to show how agencies are created, what they do, and how they are controlled. The emphasis of the text is on the function and control of agency processes, and is presented in a way that shows relevance to the student s every day life, leaving them with a working knowledge of how agencies operate.
