The expanding size and burgeoning complexity of the federal, state, and local governments accompanied by a corresponding increase in the administrative agencies of each branch of government, have created new and perplexing problems for the attorney, whether he be in private practice, or house counsel for a large company. By necessity, the attorney is called upon to pursue and solve problems outside of the judicial branch of the government. In order to attack these problems, it is necessary to know what constitutes an administrative agency, and what constitutes administrative law.
