On April 1, 2017 the ARB’s Amended Rules of Practice and Procedures came into effect. These rules fundamentally changed the Board’s practice and procedures which have been in effect since the inception of the Rules in the 1990’s. In person hearings are a thing of the past. Knowledge of historical rules will be of little assistance.
Emphasis is now on electronic hearings, via “tele” or video conferencing, written motions and hearing events—all require a fundamental change in current culture. A working knowledge of written evidence preparation and written arguments is the new “normal”.
The presenters will review and outline current requirements and expectations. They will also provide guidelines for effective writing of the reports and briefs.
