Guide Contents

The area of administrative law consists of rules, regulations, orders, licenses, advisory opinions, and decisions that are promulgated by agencies. Congress may delegate to an agency the authority to formulate rules and regulations through a statute, or the President may do so through an executive order. Like statutes and judicial opinions, rules and regulations promulgated by agencies have the force of law. In format and operation, regulations resemble statutes (which are the laws passed by Congress).
