Administrative Law

A body of law created by government agencies. It consists of rules, regulations, and decisions made by an agency rather than a law passed by Congress or Parliament. That is, administrative law is not legislation, but it has the force of law. Administrative law became more common starting in the 20th century as government programs worldwide became both more common and more complex.
