Administrative law, a fundamental guardian of the rule of law, is the branch of public law that regulates devolved decision-making by bodies that implement government policy and services.  The government frequently devolves power through legislation to a diverse range of decision-makers; administrative law is the set of rules that regulates, and places checks and balances, on that often far-reaching power.  The study of administrative law provides a foundation for the study of, and practice in, many areas of law including constitutional, quasi-criminal, professional regulation and discipline, national security, military, financial regulation, municipal, immigration, human rights, environmental, sports and entertainment, tax, indigenous, health (including the recent challenges posed by Covid-19), labour and employment, competition, arbitration, education, and public inquiries.
