National Administrative Law Judiciary Foundation 
2018 Fellowship Competition Announced


Submission Deadline: January 8, 2018

2018 Fellowship Topic Announcement

With the exception of 2017, each year since 1993, NAALJ and its tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit affiliate, the National Administrative Law Judge Foundation (NALJF), have co-sponsored an annual writing competition on a topic of interest to the administrative judiciary. Past fellowship award recipients have included many distinguished administrative law judges, hearing officers, and academicians.  NAALJ is pleased to announce resumption of the competition in 2018. This year we are seeking a paper on one of the following topics:

• Many professional licensing board members sit as judges and hearing officers during disciplinary hearings. Two years after the United States Supreme Court issued its opinion in North Carolina Dental Board v. Federal Trade Commission, 574 U.S. ____, 135 S. Ct. 1101 (2015), what risks are these professionals taking when they sit as adjudicators?  Or, alternatively,

• Two years after the United States Supreme Court issued its opinion in North Carolina Dental Board v. Federal Trade Commission, 574 U.S. ____, 135 S. Ct. 1101 (2015), how have state legislatures responded.

• The importance of ALJ decisional independence; 

• A scholarly paper on a topic of the applicant’s choice.

ONLY ONE Fellowship proposal will be chosen

All applications for the 2018 Fellowship must be in electronic format (Microsoft Word format preferred) and must include the following documents: (1) an abstract or an introduction to the proposed article; (2) a detailed outline for the proposed article; (3) a writing sample; (4) curriculum vitae; and (5) a list of publications. All submissions must be sent by e-mail to naalj@naalj.org, with a cc to Hon. Edward J. Schoenbaum, Fellowship Committee Chair, at judgeeds@gmail.com.

The deadline for all submissions is January 8, 2018.

The Fellowship Committee will review the submissions and select the Fellowship winner by February 28, 2018.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Prior Fellowship winners, current members of the Fellowship Committee, current members of the NAALJ Journal Board of Advisors, and current members and officers of the NAALJ Board MAY NOT APPLY for the Fellowship.

The Fellow will prepare an original article for publication in the Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary, and will deliver an oral presentation of up to fifty (50) minutes (subject to a shorter time allotment in the discretion of the annual meeting planners) at the 2018 NAALJ Annual Meeting and Educational Conference. The fellow will either prepare a summary or outline of oral remarks to be included in the annual meeting materials for CLE credit or will have the final draft of the paper ready for inclusion in conference materials. The final draft of the paper will be due on approximately six weeks after the 2018 Annual Meeting and Educational Conference. 

The Fellow will receive a $1,500.00 cash stipend, as well as transportation, accommodations, and meals, at the 2018 NAALJ Annual Meeting and Educational Conference.

Applications and inquiries regarding the Fellowship should be submitted by e-mail to naalj@naalj.org, with cc to Hon. Edward J. Schoenbaum, Fellowship Committee Chair, at judgeeds@gmail.com.
