2023:  A Municipal Law Odyssey

6 hours of California MCLE credits offered, including 1 hour of ethics and 1 hour of Recognition and Elimination of Bias.

The one-day event will be held at the Santa Clara University School of Law in Santa Clara. The symposium will provide an exploration of issues facing municipal lawyers in 2023, including issues regarding cybersecurity, privacy, social media, and the Brown Act, as well as ethics and technology.

The purposes of the annual symposium are to:

  • Integrate the study and practice of municipal law in order to encourage and train students to work in municipal law as a profession.
  • Promote, through research and scholarly exchange, an analysis of municipal law issues.
  • Support the legislative and legal advocacy programs of the City Attorneys Department by acting as a resource to the state legislature and judiciary in the development of municipal law.

The symposium will also include a luncheon keynote discussion on representation in the City Attorney’s Office: The Changing Faces of Municipal Law where members of the panel will share their experiences through an open discussion.

The symposium is co-sponsored this year by the Center for Social Justice and Public Service, Santa Clara University School of Law, the League of California Cities, the City Attorneys Department, and the Municipal Law Institute Committee.
