    Product Description

    Lawyers who represent and advise our cities, towns, or other public sector clients encounter complex, multi-disciplinary questions daily. 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 courts. The accelerating rate of change in municipal 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 legal challenges in the municipal arena!
