Join an ABA AdLaw Section Committee

by Chris Walker — Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018@chris_j_walker

admin_law_logo_smallI’ve previously given my pitch (here) for why every administrative law practitioner, scholar, and student should join the ABA’s Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice. I’m now seconding Linda Jellum’s recent invitation (reproduced below) for administrative law folks to join an ABA AdLaw Section committee.

I co-chair the adjudication committee with ACUS Vice Chair Matt Wiener, and the committee is a great opportunity to organize events and teleforums around agency adjudication and to interact with others (ALJs, AJs, practitioners, etc.) who are similarly interested in the topic.

Here is Professor Jellum’s invitation:

I am writing to encourage you to become involved with the ABA’s Administrative Law section. We are currently seeking individuals interested in working on and chairing our various committees. The Admin section is one of the ABA sections that truly welcomes law professors as well as non-academics alike. My own involvement with the section has been incredibly rewarding and offered many opportunities throughout my career from writing and speaking opportunities to serving as an expert witness.

Here is a list of our committees (not in alphabetical order). If you have any interest, you can either let me (here) know or send an email to Anne Kiefer (here) above. We’d love to have your interest and enthusiasm.
