Join Us In February For a Networking Event, Annual Meeting and CLE Program

The Government & Public Sector Section invites you to three events that promise to be well worth your time.

Save the Dates:  Thursday, Feb. 21 and Friday, Feb. 22, 2019

A joint networking event with the Constitutional Rights & Responsibilities Section is Thursday, Feb. 21 from 5:15 – 6:30 p.m. at Dean’s Kitchen & Bar, 1080 Darrington Drive, Cary.  The event is free for all Section members.  Click here to register online by Feb. 20.

A Friday, Feb. 22 joint CLE with the Constitutional Rights & Responsibilities Section:  “In Tune or Off Key: Law, Government, Constitutional Rights and Responsibilities” will provide six hours of CLE credit, including one hour of ethics/professional responsibility credit.  This program presents a full-day’s concert of sessions dealing with the legal music of our lives. Topics include:

  • A view from the bench regarding Section 1983, government and citizen suits
  • Protecting voting rights and empowering citizens in environmentally vulnerable areas
  • Data privacy and legal ethics
  • Administrative searches and warrants
  • Injunctive relief when citizens participate in democracy
  • Protecting rights and citizens from debtors prison

Click here to register and join us on Friday, Feb. 22 as we turn up the volume on our knowledge of these chords of law.

Also on Friday, Feb. 22, we will hold our Section’s annual meeting and present the Grainger Barrett Award for Excellence.  The Award is designed to honor a government or public sector attorney for their excellence, dedication and passion for justice.

Please note:  You do not have to attend the CLE in order to attend the networking event or the annual meeting and presentation of the Grainger Barrett Award for Excellence.  However, we really hope that you will choose to come to all three events.
