Government Law Section: Pot Luck, Hors d'oeuvres and Twinkies--A Delicious Dish of Government Law
For government law practitioners, this year’s Government Law Section seminar is one you won't want to miss. Judge Carolyn Matthews will kick things off with the dos and don’ts of preparing for and appearing before the Administrative Law Court. Next, our experienced faculty will discuss topics including the workings of multi-county industrial and business parks, how to use incentives to attract industry, consolidation of special-purpose districts, developments in the Freedom of Information Act and the current status of privacy and the use of employees’ personal electronic devices in the workplace. Finally, end the day with a legislative panel discussion on redistricting issues. Plan to spend an enjoyable and informative Friday morning with us.
