Plain Language: The Judges' PerspectiveEver wonder what judges think of the clarity of government documents? Find out at the first annual Government Administrative Law Institute, presented by the American Bar Association on June 15, 2000 in Washington, DC.
Designed in cooperation with the National Partnership for Reinventing Government, this program will address: What are the particular weaknesses of plain language? What problems arise when the government does not draft its statutes, regulations, contracts, and other documents clearly? What can the government do to improve the clarity of its documents?
Fee for the program is $10. The program will run from 1:30-3:00 PM in the Main Auditorium of the Department of Commerce, 14th and Constitution, NW (nearest Metro stops: Metro Center and Federal Triangle).
Please reserve your seat by June 9th. Contact Cindy Burns, ABA, Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice, 740 15th Street NW, Washington, DC 20005, FAX: 202/662-1529.
