Administrative Hearings: Nuts & Bolts Part 1 of 4 (Webinar)

This webinar is the first of a four-part program designed to walk attorneys and litigants through the process and strategies to handle an administrative hearing. Our panel of Administrative Law Judges will share their views of best practices for preparing and presenting a case before the Office of Administrative Hearings.

This webinar (Part I) will provide an introduction to the Office of Administrative Hearings and an overview of general administrative law concepts, including: what laws apply, what is a proposed decision, due process, and burden of proof.

Parts II, III, and IV will cover the prehearing, hearing, and post-hearing processes.
