Membership and Membership Renewal


Dear Administrative Law Judges and Administrative Hearing Officials: 


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 March 2017 NAALJ newsletter is available at   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 New York City at Fordham University School of Law, October 8-10, 2017, and the NAALJ 2016 annual conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. See the NAALJ website at or the IAALJ website at 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
