The Missouri Public Service Commission is seeking an attorney for the position of Regulatory Law Judge in our Jefferson City office. This is a quasi-judicial, administrative law judge position that requires the ability to write orders and to preside over adversarial hearings.
The written orders will range from routine procedural orders and noncontested final orders, to more complex orders that must be supported by competent and substantial evidence based on the evidentiary hearing record. Cases that go to hearing can range from one issue complaints to those involving complex economic, engineering and accounting issues, which include a minimum of 3 but sometimes more than 10 or 12 adverse parties, and where the amount in dispute can be millions of dollars.
The successful candidate will independently control a docket of cases from the Telecommunications, Electric, Gas, Water, Sewer, and Steam industries, and review extensive pleadings, written expert testimony, briefs, and other case-related documents in the preparation of final Commission orders. The judge must work effectively within a panel of six judges and for a five-member Commission. This requires the ability to provide sound legal analysis and well-drafted documents under sometimes demanding deadlines.
QUALIFICATIONS: Five years of experience in administrative law, regulatory law, or government practice. Applicant must be a member of the Missouri Bar and must demonstrate excellent reasoning and writing skills.
