Overview

This practical, paralegal-specific text takes an applied approach to administrative law.

Excerpts of legislation, statutes, and sample rules allow students to read the actual law and original material. Sample documents, sample pages from research sources, and other illustrations provide examples of materials with which students will need to be familiar. Exercises help students apply chapter material by performing paralegal tasks. Edited cases at the end of each chapter illustrate chapter concepts and most are discussed within the chapter.
