Prof. Kristin Hickman Appointed Senior Fellow by the Administrative Conference of the United States
Professor Kristin Hickman was appointed as a Senior Fellow by the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS), to serve a two-year term. The Administrative Conference of the United States is an independent, non-partisan federal agency within the executive branch dedicated to improving administrative law and federal regulatory processes. It conducts applied research, and provides expert recommendations and other advice, to improve federal agency procedures. Its membership is composed of senior federal officials, academics, and other experts from the private sector. Since 1968, ACUS has issued hundreds of recommendations, published reports and reference guides, and organized forums to improve the efficiency, adequacy, and fairness of administrative processes such as rule-making and adjudication. Many have resulted in reforms by federal agencies, the President, Congress, and the Judicial Conference of the United States. Hickman previously served ACUS for six years as a Public Member and for four years as Chair of its Judicial Review Committee.
