Interest groups participate in the political process in a variety of ways. They can lobby the legislature, interact with elected and administrative executive officials, and participate in litigation either as a litigant or an amicus curiae. But the literature is scarce in exploring the differences in how interest groups participate in the various branches, and scarcer in explaining why their participation is different. This study explores the actions by one interest group, the American Bar Association, in participating in "notice and comment" rulemaking by the Department of Labor.
