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.
