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.
