I will be a panelist this week at the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Second Annual Public Law Conference. The conference is focused on lawyers who represent government bodies and those who appear before government agencies. The day’s keynote speaker will be Suzanne M. Bump, secretary of labor and workforce development in Massachusetts. I am presenting a panel on the open meeting law together with Thomas Urbelis, a lawyer who represents many cities and towns. For other speakers, see the conference Web page.

The conference is Wednesday, June 4, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Holiday Inn Boston at Beacon Hill. Cost to attend ranges from $40 for law students, paralegals and recent admittees to $160 for non-MBA members.
