Week 4 Assignment – Constitutional Law vs. Administrative Law
Constitutional law is something you are likely familiar with to some extent, but the laws around administrative law may be less familiar. While the Constitution outlines many specific laws, it does not necessarily speak to much of what happens in the administration of our government. For this assignment, you are asked to look at where constitutional and administrative law intersect and where they diverge.
Write a 3–4 page paper that includes the following three parts:
An explanation of the areas in which constitutional and administrative law intersect.
An explanation of where constitutional and administrative laws diverge.
An evaluation of the impact of the divergence in these laws. What impact does this have for someone working in the field of public administration?
Use at least three sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your sources page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citing sources, access the library or review library guides.
