Legal Research Resources for USD Students (Non-Law): Administrative Law

This guide is intended for academic research in legal resources by University of South Dakota graduate and undergraduate students from colleges and schools other than the School of Law. The information in this guide is not intended as legal advice.

Introduction to Administrative Law

The United States Congress or a state legislature may grant certain powers through "enabling statutes" to executive departments or regulatory agencies. These powers include mplementing or enforcing a legislative scheme. Departments or agencies may have the ability to create rules or regulations, and/or hear disputes arising under statutes and issue decisions. Agency rules, regulations and decisions are subject to review by the courts. See Amy E. Sloan, Basic Legal Research 237 (4th ed. 2009).
