Are you new to municipal law? Did you recently transfer into an advisory position?  Have you not yet responded to a Public Records Act request, or feel that you have not yet mastered the art of preparing a response?

If any of the above describes you or someone you supervise, this Essential Hour presentation is designed for you!  Join us for a presentation during which we will discuss Public Records Act basics, offer tips and suggestions, and provide takeaways. Essential Hour is a joint effort of the Public Records Act Committee and the Attorney Development and Succession Committee (Substantive Law Subcommittee) of the City Attorneys Department.
