NAALJ is on the forefront in the fulfillment of the true and proper role of administrative adjudication within the larger science of jurisprudence.. Administrative adjudication has existed since the very beginning of our country in the sense that commissions were created by George Washington as president and other early presidents for such functions as the assignment of specific executive responsibilities and calculations of veteran s benefits from the time of the American Revolution and the creation of tariffs schedules for American ports.. It is our fond hope that in the future our role will take its place in the larger structure of government..
