How is administrative law different than litigating through the courts?Return to Video FAQs
The administrative law is different than litigating through the courts in that an administrative law judge or a magistrate will be the one to decide the outcome of your case rather than in a criminal court or even in the civil court. More than likely, you’re entitled to have a trial by jury and have members of the community who are your peers decide the outcome of your case. In administrative law, also the rules are different in terms of what evidence is admissible versus the rules that govern what evidence is admissible in front of a jury. These differences can have a severe impact on the outcome of your case, and you should a hire a skilled lawyer to guide you through this process.
