Administrative Judges

This project explores agencies’ use of administrative judges (AJs), who preside over hearings outside of those governed by the Administrative Procedure Act. It studies the use of AJs across numerous agencies and offers recommendations on selection, supervision, evaluation, and removal practices. A proposed recommendation from the Committee on Adjudication was on the agenda of the June 2018 Plenary Session. At the Plenary Session, the Assembly voted to recommit the proposed recommendation to the Committee. No further Committee proceedings are anticipated.
