2020 Administrative Law Conference

November 19, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 10:30 AM (EST)
Ends: 12:00 PM (EST)

Join Partner Thomas Lorenzen for a panel during the American Bar Association's (ABA) 2020 Administrative Law Conference. The panel "Administrative Record 101: A Litigator’s Guide to Understanding, Compiling, and Using an Administrative Record in an Era of Increasing Uncertainty" will be held on Thursday, November 19th at 10:30 am.

The administrative record is an often-overlooked but essential part of any lawsuit under the Administrative Procedure Act. This panel will focus on all aspects of the administrative record, beginning with its development by both the agency and potential litigants at the administrative level through its treatment by federal courts. The panel will discuss such issues as what materials are required to be included in an administrative record, how a potential litigant can help shape the development of that record with an eye towards future litigation, and how courts across the nation have taken such divergent views on these issues. The panelists will include individuals with expertise across the administrative spectrum, including agency counsel with first-hand experience developing an administrative record, counsel from the appellate and trial sections of the Department of Justice with experience litigating these issues, and counsel for plaintiffs who have faced these issues from the other side. In light of this broad range of viewpoints, this panel would be beneficial for government counsel interested in increasing their knowledge of administrative record issues as well as counsel from the private sector who may represent clients dealing with government agencies.
