Increase your familiarity with procedures before administrative agencies and enhance your ability to deal with a variety of administrative hearing issues!
Practitioners are not always well-versed with administrative hearing procedures and the rights their clients may have in cases before administrative agencies. Likewise, administrative law judges are not as conversant as they should be with the administrative framework they operate under. Get the best practice tips you need for the successful prosecution, defense, and decision-making processes in administrative law cases with the information provided in this seminar. Administrative law judges and attorneys who practice before administrative law agencies will benefit from the relevant topics covered, including subpoena issues, the right to cross-examine witnesses, and procedural requirements. The program includes a mock hearing in which our administrative law judges play the roles of attorneys prosecuting and defending a case, while an administrative law judge presides at the hearing.
Please Note: Prior to the program, you will receive a weblink via email allowing you to access the course materials prior to the program. You will also receive a copy of the course materials (for no additional charge) when you arrive at the program, but will need to check the appropriate box on the registration page letting us know if you prefer a flash drive or printed course book.
