AALJs Hold Annual Education Conference in Chicago

This week, the Association of Administrative Law Judges (AALJ)/IFPTE Judicial Council convened their annual training conference in Chicago. Upwards of 200 Social Security Administration (SSA) Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) attended the training.

The conference, entitled “Essential Body Systems 1: Major Joints and the Cardiovascular System”, highlighted presentations and workshops that are directly relevant to ALJ work, including those dealing with ethics, circuit law, and new mental disparment listings, among others.

After the work day was completed and in the early evening, Judicial Council 1 members were given the opportunity to hear from IFPTE and AALJ legislative and public relations staff regarding the AALJ legislative program and their work on Capitol Hill and in the press on important issues facing AALJ members. Among the issues discussed were the recently passed House budget that calls for billions in cuts to federal worker pensions, and an effort by the SSA to erode judicial independence.
