The Law Center will open on time, Tuesday, January 27, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect.
All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances. Classes will begin at their normal time, unless otherwise noted on the class cancellation line: 202-662-9446 or the class cancellation page.

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.
