GW Law Review

To celebrate the Administrative Conference’s 50th Anniversary, The George Washington Law Review will publish a special edition of the Law Review’s annual administrative law issue. The commemorative double-issue, to be published in 2015, will feature submissions from scholars and practitioners in the field of administrative law—each highlighting ACUS’s role in and varied contributions to our system of government. 


The Administrative Conference turns 50 this year.  The Conference officially came into being on August 30, 1964, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Administrative Conference Act (Public Law 88-499) and established the agency. Now, 50 years later, we are still dedicated to improving the administrative process through consensus-driven applied research.

Chairman Verkuil

ACUS is among the smallest agencies of our federal government, but it has a very important mission: to promote improvements in the efficiency, adequacy, and fairness of the procedures by which federal agencies conduct regulatory programs, administer grants and benefits, and perform related governmental functions.  We do this through activities that include research projects, recommendations directed primarily to agencies and Congress, and publications and seminars.

Sourcebook of United States Executive Agencies

This ACUS sourcebook examines the agencies and other organizational entities of the federal executive establishment, including independent agencies.  No other up-to-date resource of its kind exists.
