Do Administrative Judges specialize in a particular area of the law?

No, Administrative Judges hear a wide variety of cases.  Judges have experience with the multi-faceted issues presented by each individual case filed with APD.  This approach allows for the greatest amount of flexibility with scheduling and assignment of cases ensuring that hearings and mediations proceed in the most expeditious manner possible.  The one exception to this practice involves State Board of Equalization cases which are primarily assigned to a subset of judges with additional specialized training in that area of the law.
