Join some of the field’s preeminent litigators in a week-long workshop-based seminar focused on practicing effectively and successfully in administrative hearings involving federal employment law; e.g. MSPB and EEOC. Begin by preparing the case when assigned to a team that represents either the agency or the employee, get organized for the hearing, and learn the techniques of effective direct- and cross-examination. Try the case before an Administrative Judge and receive a critique along with the decision. Close out the week with an appreciation for the available appellate procedures. Space is limited so register early.

The program runs 8:30 – 4:00 each day and concludes at 2:00 on Friday.

MSPB & EEOC Hearing Practices Week participants are eligible for the FELTG Certified Practitioner Program.
