Getting Started

This guide is meant to help describe the organization of administrative law materials - and how to find them. 

For a more in-depth discussion on administrative law, check out a treatise:

Here's a great tutorial on admin law research from the Georgetown Law Library, and a six-page outline on administrative law.

For all other research help at HLS, email, call, chat, text us:  Ask a Librarian.

Administrative law research has three distinct but related content:

  1. Substantive administrative law and the underlying powers and procedures of administrative agencies
  2. Regulatory activities and actions of administrative agencies, including agency regulations, decisions and reports
  3. Issuances of the President, namely Executive Orders

Finding administrative law materials often starts with:

  1. Administrative agency website
  3. Federal Register
  4. Code of Federal Regulations
  5. Lexis, Westlaw or Bloomberg Law
  6. Loose-leaf services, like BNA & CCH

For laws affecting agency procedure, such as the Administrative Procedure Act, see Federal Register Laws Index.
