How is administrative law different from civil litigation?
Most people are familiar with the process for handling a legal dispute between two private entities. We call this process civil litigation. When it comes to a legal dispute with a government agency, the process is a little different. Actually suing the government is, unsurprisingly, quite difficult. Instead, this process falls under administrative law, where a third-party administrative judge hears evidence from both sides and makes a ruling on whether to uphold or overturn the agency’s decision.
