Administrative Policy Writing
What is a SOAH hearing like?
A SOAH hearing is a primary way to see the executive
branch of our state government in action.
These hearings feel like a trial, but are usually less formal.
You will see an ALJ in the front of the room. The state’s
attorney and the respondent will sit facing the ALJ.
Like trials, SOAH hearings are open to the public.
Attend a SOAH hearing and write a
response paper on what you observed. See the assignment
sheet at the course web site.
