Administrative law is the legal framework that governs the relationship between individuals and the government, particularly when government decisions affect the rights of individuals. This usually entails challenging decisions made by government officials, departments, or authorities. Individuals exercising statutory authority may also be subject to administrative law. While administrative decisions can cover a wide range of topics, not all of them can be challenged.
