Why Should I Join FALJC?

FALJC has been in the forefront on core issues of importance to the administrative law judiciary, which this past year focused on maintaining the integrity of the ALJ selection process and preserving judicial independence. Many other issues require attention as well, such as pay compression and ALJ qualifications. There are multiple challenges on these fronts and we all want to see positive results.

FALJC keeps track of the latest developments for federal ALJs, including legislative activity, ALJ job openings, and agency specific news and information. As a FALJC member you will receive frequent e-mail Newsletters and News Alerts, full access to our informative website, invitations to our monthly luncheon meetings in the Washington, D.C. area, the opportunity to attend our Annual Seminar and Conference at reduced member rates, and a chance to meet and socialize with your ALJ colleagues from all over the United States.

FALJC is dedicated to promoting the unique interests of the federal administrative judiciary, including fair compensation and judicial independence. The resources for our efforts can only come from you. Membership in FALJC is limited to current federal Administrative Law Judges duly appointed under 5 U.S.C. Section 3105. Retired federal ALJs are also invited to join FALJC.  If you have not already, please consider joining FALJC today.
