Course Description

This program was recorded on May 6, 2021

Governmental entities, ranging from small towns, cities and counties, to states, native tribes and even the federal government, often need outside counsel to represent their interests in affirmative litigation. Taking on such public clients carries certain risks, rewards, and procedural pitfalls. This course will cover the basics of finding opportunities for such cases, navigating procurement laws, working with public clients, effectively advocating on the government's behalf, and unique damages models, causes of action and remedies, as well as resolving such claims. Ethical implications, including conflicts of interest, public records laws, and quasi-police powers, among other pitfalls will also be covered. Finally, creative solutions / practice tips in this area will be discussed as well.
