New York Law School’s CityLaw Breakfast Series resumes in 2017 with a talk by Fidel F. Del Valle, Commissioner and Chief Administrative Law Judge of New York City’s Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH). Del Valle oversees the independent central court that conducts more than 300,000 hearings each year and consists of four tribunals: the OATH Tribunal, the Environmental Control Board (ECB), the OATH Taxi and Limousine Tribunal, and the OATH Health Tribunal. He will speak about reforming the agency to enhance fairness and justice. Prior to OATH, Del Valle’s government career included a turn as Chairman of the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission and as an attorney and counselor at the New York City Police Department and the Department of Probation.
Anthony W. Crowell, Dean and President of New York Law School and former counselor to Mayor Bloomberg, and Professor Ross Sandler, founding director of the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School, will give opening remarks.
CityLaw breakfasts are held six to eight times a year at New York Law School and feature prominent speakers discussing current government and political issues. They are free and open to the public. An audience Q&A follows each speaker’s remarks. The events are often broadcast by NYC Media cable television throughout the five boroughs and are webcast live at http://www.citylandnyc.org/.
Founding sponsors of the breakfasts include Consolidated Edison, Verizon, and Greenberg Traurig LLP. This is the 140th CityLaw Breakfast.
