Why it is relevant for ...
[ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Foundational Course : An essential part of the foundation for IP lawyers focusing on regulatory or policy work is an understanding of the respective functions of lawmakers and rule-making agencies in both federal and state government. Understanding the administrative process is essential for those representing their clients before administrative agencies and other rule making bodies. Administrative Law and Legislation together provide a framework for engaging the legislative and executive branches of government.
