About Christopher B. McNeil, J.D., Ph.D.

The National Institute for Trial Advocacy has published my most recent book, "Administrative Agency Litigation". This is a clinical primer for lawyers, law students, and clinicians interested in preparing for agency hearings. I am also pleased to report that Lambert Academic Publishing published the dissertation for my doctorate in Judicial Studies from the University of Nevada, Reno. The dissertation examines state administrative agency adjudication hearings, and explores whether variables in agency hearing structures affect participant perceptions of fairness in the hearings. The core body of my writing concerns administrative adjudications, primarily in state agency setting. I recently accepted an appointment as a federal administrative law judge. I have also spent a substantial part of my professional career teaching law students (at Capital University Law School, from 1995 to 2009) and judges (at the National Judicial College) how to reason, research, and write in the law. The body of work located through this site includes books and articles I have written in the hope of making it easier to understand federal and state administrative adjudication processes.
