What is Administrative Law?
Administrative law is composed of the laws that define the scope of powers and responsibilities held by administrative agences. Agencies have the power to adjudicate, legislate, and enforce laws within their specific areas of power. The agencies are given this power by Congress (or state legislatures) so that they may act as agents for the executive branch. States, including Colorado, have their own administrative law.
