Online registration for the annual Municipal Law Institute Symposium ends Feb. 9. The one-day educational event will provide an in-depth exploration of the changing legal framework surrounding homelessness, rent control, affordable housing, and housing construction.

This year’s symposium is at the Southwestern School of Law in Los Angeles on Feb. 16. The symposium will include a keynote address by John Heilman, a professor of law at the Southwestern Law School and West Hollywood council member. The symposium also includes lunch and an informal reception after the program.

Attendees can earn five hours of MCLE credits through the symposium. Registration is $75 for those who work for public agencies; general registration is $130. Complimentary registration is available for law students.

The purpose of the annual symposium is to:

  • Integrate the study of municipal law in law schools with the practice of municipal law to encourage and train students to work in municipal law.
  • Promote an analysis of municipal law issues through research and scholarly exchange.
  • 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 is co-sponsored by Cal Cities, the Cal Cities City Attorneys Department, the Municipal Law Institute Committee, and Southwestern Law School. For questions, please contact Lily Wong.
