Government Law

The roots of modern government law go back as far as ancient Greek and Roman times. Today’s modern laws seek to address both federal and state regulations impacting everything from the interplay between federal and state tax dollars to more local administrative agency concerns. Topics under this umbrella also include issues such as eligibility for aid under the federal Railroad Retirement and Railroad Unemployment Insurance Acts to ensuring environmental compliance from big business. If you are an attorney researching how the federal government awards or negotiates contracts, including an explanation on the bidding process and procurement integrity, FindLaw has a series of articles to help better inform your government law-based practice.
