Occupy The Field

It refers to the displacing effects (monopolizing) of the laws by the higher authority like federal laws over the state laws. When there is a conflict between the laws or theres inconsistency in the laws of state and federal, the federal law has an authority to make the law of state effectless, which means they occupy the field.
