The Rutter Group California Practice Guide: Administrative Law is the authoritative resource for successfully handling agency cases from investigations through administrative hearings and judicial appeals, as well as navigating the rulemaking process, open meetings laws, and the California Public Records Act.

This is the first-ever practice guide to bring together all substantive and procedural aspects of California administrative law. It is a "how-to" comprehensive work for both lawyers representing clients before state and local agencies and lawyers representing those agencies – including agencies regulating businesses and professions, as well as land use, and those administering environmental laws and adjudicating disputes over public employment and public benefits. Essential practice-tested forms are included.
