Answer Bar: Litigating the Administrative Law Case

Session 1: Navigating Your Licensing Case Pre-SOAH - Have you ever regretted not pursuing an action or negotiation prior to SOAH? Have you ever thought there might be alternative ways to settle your case prior to SOAH that no one ever uses?

This presentation’s goal is to alleviate these concerns and answer these questions.

Explore statutory and agency rule authority granting informal resolution of investigations prior to formal proceedings at SOAH.

This presentation examines the permissible scope of those actions: how far can they go, and how far is too far? Session 7: The Art of Persuasion: Winning at SOAH - To organize and present an effective case, you need to understand not just the law, but also what will genuinely be persuasive to the judge.
