    Product Description

    Co-sponsored by Massachusetts Municipal Lawyers Association and Massachusetts Municipal Association

    Lawyers who represent and advise our cities, towns, or other public sector clients are presented daily with complex, multi-disciplinary questions. The breadth and depth of legal competence required of the public sector attorney can be staggering. Similarly, attorneys who represent private clients in their dealings with local government are working in an ever-changing legal framework and are challenged to keep abreast of the rapidly changing legal landscape. Get the latest essential updates and developments from the Legislature, government regulators, and the courts. The accelerating rate of change in public sector law makes this Conference indispensable to those who work in and with the public sector. Attend and learn how your counterparts across the Commonwealth are navigating the latest challenges in the municipal arena!
