Administrative law research has three distinct but related content:
- Substantive administrative law and the underlying powers and procedures of administrative agencies
- Regulatory activities and actions of administrative agencies, including agency regulations, decisions and reports
- Issuances of the President, namely Executive Orders
Finding administrative law materials often starts with:
- Administrative agency website
- Federal Register
- Code of Federal Regulations
- Lexis, Westlaw or Bloomberg Law
- Loose-leaf services, like BNA & CCH
Business & Corporate Law
I specialize in administrative law, and business & corporate law. I help students to research corporations, securities regulations, capital markets, financial institutions, bankruptcy courts, tax laws, M&A transactions, antitrust laws and small companies. My favorite statute is Dodd Frank and my favorite agency is the CFTC. My favorite document is the US Constitution. I especially admire the Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.
