Product Description

New public records law, marijuana regulation, implication of Reed v. Gilbert on free speech, and more!

Municipal lawyers have been known to say that “municipal law” is not so much a legal practice area as it is a unique milieu within which virtually every area of law makes an appearance. It affects all aspects of life and society at the local level where most people interact with government on a daily basis. Where you live, where your children go to school and play, where you work, where you visit, where your clients do business—local government deals with it all.

And during the past year, the Legislature, courts, and regulatory bodies at all levels of government have changed the legal landscape in important ways you need to know about. Any lawyer whose practice requires currency in the field of municipal law must stay up-to-date on the multitude of changes impacting this broad area.

The panelists distill the latest developments for you in a fast-paced, lively format covering a myriad of practice areas. This “must-attend” Conference and networking opportunity is valuable to the seasoned city solicitor or town counsel, in-house counsel to a government entity at the state or local level, lawyers whose practice includes advising or representing government entities or practicing before them for private clients, and lawyers in general practice who need to understand where and how municipalities function within our state’s legal system. This Conference—designed with you, your clients, and your practice in mind—is a “can’t miss” event! Bring your questions for the experts.
