Highlight

A corporation is an artificial person that must act through its agents, and a corporation may not be represented by a non-attorney agent in a legal proceeding.
A request for reconsideration of an administrative agency's informal decision, made on behalf of a corporate entity, is not conduct that could be performed by a non-lawyer.
Pro hac vice admission is required for nonresident attorneys who engage in the practice of law by appearing, either in person, by signing pleadings, or by being designated as counsel in actions filed in administrative agencies, and a motion for pro hac vice admission must be filed no later than 45 days after the service of the pleading, motion, or other paper.
A hearing officer includes an agency head when presiding in an administrative proceeding, or any other person designated to preside in an administrative proceeding.
