Initiatives: Training and Recruitment
Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers Recruitment and Training:
Administrative law judges have an important role in the administrative justice process. City tribunals regularly seek attorneys with strong legal backgrounds, often in specialized areas, and good judicial demeanor. If you have an interest in becoming an administrative law judge at a particular tribunal, please review that agency's Web site for open opportunities.
Ongoing training is an important part of ensuring that ALJs remain up-to-date on relevant laws, precedents, and hearing procedures. AJC will work with the Administrative Justice Institute at OATH to develop a curriculum for ALJs, and will encourage continuing education through participation in CLE classes and related lectures. The Administrative Justice Coordinator recognizes that maintaining the high standards of the New York City administrative justice system depends on having well-trained judges, and will work to preserve the quality of judges we now have at each of our tribunals.
