In the latest issue of the Administrative & Regulatory Law News, outgoing ABA AdLaw Section Chair Renee Landers has call for administrative law practitioners and scholars to join the ABA AdLaw Section. With permission, I’m posting her Chair’s Comment here. I want to echo Renee’s call that you consider joining the ABA AdLaw Section, which you can do here for $60/year.
As readers of the blog hopefully know, the Notice and Comment Blog is a joint endeavor between the ABA AdLaw Section and the Yale Journal on Regulation. The content here is of course free to the public, and much of the content draws on the expertise and resources of the ABA AdLaw Section. So by joining the Section you are helping to ensure that the blog continues to provide timely coverage of developments in administrative law and regulatory practice.
There are, of course, also less altruistic (and arguably more compelling) reasons to join the ABA AdLaw Section. As a Section member, you receive the quarterly Administrative & Regulatory Law News (ARLN) magazine, the quarterly Administrative Law Review (ALR), and online access to the annual Developments in Administrative Law compendium. You also receive deep discounts on the Section’s main CLE programs, including the must-attend annual Administrative Law Conference, the Lobbying Institute, and the Homeland Security Law Institute, as well as discounts on the ABA Section’s various publications. As a Section member, you can become more engaged in the dozens of committees the Section facilitates.
I have so enjoyed my service and involvement in the ABA AdLaw Section. It brings together lawyers and scholars from diverse backgrounds and regulatory fields, and the ARLN and ALR issues alone pay for the membership costs. Please consider joining the Section here to make sure it continues to provide these important resources and continues to foster a community and dialogue for those interested in administrative law and regulatory practice.
