NYSALJA

New York State Administrative Law Judges Association

Welcome To The Website Of The New York State Administrative Law Judges Association

NYSALJA 40th LogoFor 40 years, the New York State Administrative Law Judges Association, a state affiliate chapter of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary, has been advancing the highest standards of neutrality and fairness among administrative law judges and advocating for avoiding any form of bias or discrimination in the hearing and decision making process.

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we continue our mission of promoting and advocating for improvements in the administrative process and procedures together with studying and comparing administrative law and practice in New York and other jurisdictions. Our association has provided and sponsored professional development programs, written to the Governor and key legislators on important policy issues, and many of the members of our Executive Committee were active participants in drafting the Model Code of Conduct for State Administrative Law Judges, which was adopted by the New York State Bar Association in 2009.

Looking ahead to the next 40 years, we are more determined than ever to enhance the quality of administrative justice and to find innovative and effective solutions for the improvement of administrative processes, procedures and tribunals in the State of New York.

2016 NAALJ Annual Meeting Challenge Grants & Deadlines

grant-clipart-cartoon-man-fists-full-money-royalty-free-clipart-picture-100419-009503-837053-10230Dear NYSALJA members,

As you know, the 2016 NAALJ Annual Meeting is being held in Salt Lake City, Utah from September 18-21, 2016. The NAALJ and The NALJF boards are offering the Challenge Grant Program to New York for 2016.

The program is one of NAALJ’s efforts to support educational training and professionalism among ALJs across the country.  It offers us an opportunity to choose an affiliate member to be the New York Challenge Grant recipient.  The program is named “ChallengeGrant” because NYSALJA will match NAALJ’s $500 grant for a total of $1,000. 

The grant may be spent on the cost of conference registration, hotel, travel, or other related expenses.

Grant recipients must meet the following criteria:

  1. the recipient must be a current paid member of NYSALJA;
  2. the recipient must register for and attend the 2016 NAALJ Annual Meeting and Conference ;
  3. the recipient must not have received a grant from NYSALJA or NAALJ in the last three years.

To be considered for the grants, please submit a written request to me by email (our through our contact page by clicking here), which must be received by 3:00 PM on Monday, August 8, 2010.

The winner will be randomly drawn from the names submitted, and notified prior to the conference. The winner of the NAALJ/NYSALJA grants will receive reimbursement at the conference. 

One last thing… if for some reason the winner of the grant is unable to attend (for any reason), the runner-up will be given the grant.

Any questions should be directed to me through our contact page.

Thank you and good luck.

Hon. Eric Zaidins
President, NYSALJA
