Catherine Sharkey named member of Administrative Conference of the United States

Catherine Sharkey, Crystal Eastman Professor of Law, has been appointed to the independent federal agency Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) along with four others. By providing consensus-driven applied research and nonpartisan expert advice and recommendations, ACUS works to improve the administrative process and federal agency procedures.

“It is with great pleasure that I welcome these distinguished new members to our team,” said Paul Verkuil LLM ’69, JSD ’72, ACUS chairman, in a press release. “Their insights and experience will support our core mission of improving the efficiency and fairness of government procedures.” Over the course of its existence, ACUS, which was originally founded in 1968, has adopted over 200 recommendations.

“In addition to their expertise in administrative law, government procedure and public administration, these new members provide a broad representation of views necessary to develop creative and lasting solutions to difficult problems of process and management.”
