The scope of public law is not widely understood. Public law is the law that governs government. It influences everything that governments do. If it would help you to know what a government agency is doing, or should do, if you want to affect what or how they are doing it – we can help you. Wherever central or local government policy, law reform, or regulation affects applies, public law knowledge may be the key to better results for the people and businesses affected.
