Effective Advocacy in Contested Case Administrative Hearings

Date: Wednesday, March 18, 2015 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM
Venue: Room 123 / William Mitchell College of Law  Saint Paul, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $35.00

Deadline to Register:  Monday, March 16, 2015 

This session is designed for attorneys in private practice and for Assistant Attorneys General or County Attorneys who appear before Administrative Law Judges at Office of Administrative Hearings in contested case hearings under the Minnesota Administrative Procedures Act.  The presentation will include a step-by-step description of each stage of a contested case hearing, from the Pre-Hearing Conference to the submission of written Exceptions or Argument to the final agency decision maker.  In addition to a refresher on OAH’s procedural rules governing contested cases, you will learn helpful practice tips from three different viewpoints: from the ALJ, the agency decision maker, and a private practitioner.

The panel will discuss the effective use of discovery and motion practice, as well as how to build a persuasive case in chief.  We’ll also identify pitfalls to avoid throughout the contested case process

A continental breakfast will be provided, courtesy of Fredrikson & Byron PA.
