ACUS/ABA AdLaw Section Forum on Federal Administrative Adjudication, 9/29, in DC

by Chris Walker — Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017@chris_j_walker

We have a terrific program on the Hill at the end of this month in developments on federal administrative adjudication. It will take place on September 29, 2017, from 9am to noon at the Dirksen Senate Office Building Room 562 [note room change] (located northeast of the Capitol on a site bounded by Constitution Avenue, C Street, First Street, and Second Street N.E.). It’s free and open to the public, but please register here.

Here’s the program description (with the program flyer available for download here):

Federal agencies adjudicate hundreds of thousands of claims and disputes each year—well more than the federal courts—under an array of federal regulatory and benefits programs. Yet, with a few notable exceptions, adjudication remains largely absent from the regulatory reform debate. Drawing on the work of the Administrative Conference of the United States, distinguished academics, agency officials, and other experts will address adjudication in the context of the larger administrative state and possible reforms agencies and Congress might consider
