In the last few years, there have been a number of challenges to the administrative state as we know it. Some of these changes might be viewed as positive while others might be viewed as negative. This discussion will focus on various aspects of administrative law, how to address politics with clients without becoming too political, how to hold government accountable when your preferred political party is in power and when it is not, and how to move the conversation forward to create positive change.
The speakers include LMU-Duncan School of Law Professor M. Akram Faizer, Wake Forest University School of Law Professor Vanessa Zboreak, and University of Miami School of Law Professor Charlton Copeland.
The CLE has been approved for three hours of CLE credit. The cost is $50, and advance registration is required.
