Law in the Time of Corona: People, Places, Protests and Police (Administrative Law and Government & Public Sector Sections Joint CLE)

This item is expired.

The year 2020 has seen government, public sector and administrative lawyers at the epicenter of adapting and improvising to re-establish stability in unstable times. Attorneys' knowledge, experience, creativity, and flexibility have been tested in response to the pandemic, protests and other crises.

Join those who have been in the midst of these changes as we discuss the constitutional, statutory and regulatory law on protests, public meetings, curfews, police responses, privacy rights in a pandemic, the exercise of executive authority for public health, declared states of emergency, limits to access and "freedom," and constraints on the public and public employees and officials created by this new normal known as virtual or remote meetings.

This CLE is Current Events 101! Or, evolving law.

To find out what we have learned since mid-March 2020 and where the law is likely to be headed, join us for this exciting day-long CLE.
