The session will provide a thorough analysis of the most important decisions. The workshop will identify trends in the case law, issues that have surfaced repeatedly in different circuits, arguments that the government appears to be raising systematically throughout the country, and the latest developments in EAJA. There will also be a discussion of ethics, as related to appeals.

Jon C. Dubin - is the Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor of Law, Alfred Clapp Scholar, and Associate Dean for Clinical Education at Rutgers Law School.  He teaches Administrative Law, Social Security Law, Poverty Law and the Civil Justice Clinic, among other courses. His clinical practice and scholarship focuses on the SSDI/SSID programs, including co-counseling the successful appeal and drafting the principal brief in a social security disability case before the U.S. Supreme Court in Sims v. Apfel, 530 U.S. 103 (2000)—a case in which the high court also twice cited Dubin’s National Equal Justice Library Award-winning law review article and adopted the article’s doctrinal label, “issue exhaustion,” and reasoning in its decision.  Dubin also successfully litigated and argued Sykes v. Apfel, 228 F.3d 259 (3rd Cir. 2000) which produced SSA “Acquiescence Ruling” (SSR 01-1(3)), agreeing to change policy and apply the Sykes case to thousands of disability claimants within the Third Circuit region each year. He is the co-author, with Professor Frank Bloch, of the first hardbound, social security law school casebook and has co-authored nine editions of a popular federal court SSDI/SSID practice treatise with Carolyn Kubitschek.  Finally, Dubin is also a recipient NOSSCR’s Eileen P. Sweeney Distinguished Service Award, has served on the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) Social Security Disability Adjudication Project Working Group, and was elected into the National Academy of Social Insurance.
