In this segment, our speakers will discuss their respective positions as a lawyer and an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) working for an administrative agency. Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government and works to regulate the increasingly complex social, economic and political spheres of human interaction. This can include rulemaking and regulatory policy in various areas of law such as transportation, immigration, trade, homeland security, taxation, etc. Administrative lawyers observe, evaluate, assess, and sometimes oppose the implementation of certain statutory provisions adopted by Congress or the state or local legislative body. As a whole administrative lawyers make a conscientious effort to standardize and systematize the way in which government agencies operate.
