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 a variety of activities that include scholarly research projects, development of recommendations directed primarily to agencies and Congress, and publications and seminars on best procedural practices.

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 of the United States is accepting applications from lawyers with at least two years of full-time, post-law school experience to serve as an attorney advisor at the Conference’s office in Washington, DC. Applicants should email a cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample (preferably as a single PDF file) to Matthew Wiener, the Executive Director of the Conference, at, no later than September 14, 2015.
