Administrative Hearings

About the Division

The Administrative Hearings Division is a component of the Office of Civil and Environmental Law (KRS 15.010). Under KRS 15.111, the Division is tasked with maintaining a pool of hearing officers for conducting administrative hearings for government boards and agencies. It also provides and certifies training programs that enable individuals to become, and remain, hearing officers.

The Division’s Hearing Officers conduct administrative hearings for over 60 state agencies and boards in Kentucky. The Division also offers mediation services to government agencies and boards, which can provide a cost-effective means of resolving disputes without the cost of formal administrative proceedings.
