Dear Administrative Law Judges and Administrative Hearing Officials:
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUES FOR 2016-2017 ARE NOW DUE AND PAYABLE.
The Illinois Association of Administrative Law Judges (IAALJ) is the official Illinois affiliate of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary (NAALJ), the largest professional association of administrative law judges and administrative hearing officials in the nation. The IAALJ is a not for profit corporation dedicated to the advancement of administrative justice and the professional status of administrative law judges employed by government entities in Illinois. The IAALJ is one of the largest NAALJ affiliated state organizations.
Through cooperative efforts to strengthen local organizations of administrative law judges, your membership in the IAALJ automatically makes you a member of the NAALJ for the annual dues of $80.00. This is less than the cost of being a member of the NAALJ alone. By continuing as a member of the IAALJ and the NAALJ you will be provided:
- A subscription to the Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary and the newsletters of the IAALJ and the NAALJ containing current developments in administrative law, adjudication and administrative law judge advancement. The latest August 2016 NAALJ newsletter is available at www.naalj.org. The Journal of the NAALJ, published by the Pepperdine University School of Law, is widely recognized as the finest and most scholarly publication focusing on developments affecting the administrative judiciary.
- Notices to participate in professional continuing legal educational opportunities, seminars and conferences, some free or at nominal cost, designed specifically for administrative law judges by some of the top legal experts in their fields, such as this fall’s annual NAALJ meeting and conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, the NAALJ 2015 annual conference in Portland, Oregon and the 2015 midyear seminar in Annapolis, Maryland. See the NAALJ website at www.naalj.org or the IAALJ website at www.iaalj.org for more details. Scholarships and grants are available for the NAALJ annual conference and seminars. Mediation training discounts to the National Judicial College are also available through the NAALJ.
- Opportunities to socialize and interact with administrative law judges from Illinois and across the nation, debating issues important to all of us. You will also have the opportunity to participate in the work of the substantive and service committees of the NAALJ and the IAALJ.
