Statute may determine which procedures must be followed, or it may be up to the administrator’s discretion. In a two to three-page paper, discuss the main points along the continuum of legal formality (for an illustration see Appendix A, page 431 in the text) as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the levels of formality (or informality).
