National Conference of the Administrative Law Judiciary (NCALJ)

The NCALJ represents the administrative law judiciary within the Judicial Division. It works to enhance the status and competence of the administrative judiciary and to promote the quality, efficiency and delivery of justice through the operation of the administrative justice system.

2020-2021 Committee Enrollment Open

Perhaps the best way NCALJ members work together professionally and socially to meet the Conference's goals is through committee participation which provides a lively and open forum for debate, analysis and education. Through the work and dedication of committees, NCALJ gives you access to other judges from across the country with common, as well as diverse, interests and goals.
