Administrative Law Attorney California – The Government Code
Administrative Law pertains to the type of law that deals with professional licenses including the disciplining of those licenses.
The California Government Code lays out some of the basic rules regarding the administrative law and professional licensing hearing process.
However, that basic administrative hearing process is then supplemented with specific sections, rules and regulations that may be found in the Education Code (in teacher credentialing cases), the Business and Professions Code and the California Code of Regulations. Each type of professional license in California, including teaching credentials, nursing licenses, health care professional licenses, real estate licenses, department of insurance licenses, licenses governed by the department of consumer affairs, contractors licenses, day care licenses, therapists licenses, etc… have their own specific rules and bylaws.
