Administrative law concerns the work of government agencies, including areas such as the regulation of health and safety and the administration of disability and welfare programs. Many administrative law lawyers spend their career rotating between the private and public sectors, and are focused in one specific area of regulation (such as environmental or pharmaceutical). Administrative lawyers in law firms typically help ensure private clients are cooperating with federal regulations from administrative agencies such as the EPA or OSHA. Administrative lawyers in government work at the agencies in creating, promulgating, and enforcing regulations and administrative policies.
