Administrative Law Committee

The Committee on Administrative Law is interdisciplinary, and considers administrative law issues on a local, state, and federal level. Recently, the Committee has played an active role in efforts to further due process and access to justice at New York City's administrative tribunals, including providing testimony to the New York City Charter Revision Commission, and then commenting to a special mayoral committee on the consolidation of certain administrative tribunals. It has also collaborated with the City's Administrative Justice Coordinator and the Office of Administrative Tribunals and Hearings on CLEs. In addition, in May of 2012 the Committee co-sponsored a CLE for practitioners on federal, state, and local agency choices with respect to employment discrimination charges and complaints. The Committee's focus on agency rulemaking, adjudication, and process also informs its participation on amicus briefs and other projects.
