[ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Transactional ] Employment Law: Employee Benefits
Why it is relevant for ...
[ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Foundational Course : Legislation and Administrative Law each provide a grounding in government processes central to the enactment of laws and regulations. As policy work engages the legislative and executive branches of government to a greater degree than many other practice areas, these courses are essential for the policy lawyer. Both the law-making process of the legislative branch and the rule-making process of agencies in the executive branch focus on mechanisms for implementing policy goals. Understanding the agencies and institutions that implement the legal rules is a critical element in fashioning rules that will be effective.
[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Transactional ] as a Key Elective : An essential part of the education for business lawyers is an understanding of the respective functions of lawmakers and rule-making agencies in both federal and state government. Understanding the administrative process can be as important as understanding traditional forms of advocacy in the courtroom.
