Members of the judiciary, regulatory, and academic communities will join together to engage with practitioners and discuss the latest legislative and case law updates, rule changes, and other timely topics during the 9th Annual Advanced Texas Administrative Law Seminar. The event will take place Aug. 21-22 at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin and is presented by the University of Texas School of Law and the Administrative and Public Law Section of the State Bar of Texas.

Highlights of the two-day seminar include an examination of the informal reprimand practices of state agencies and the procedural issues they raise; protective orders, hearing procedures, and other ways to address protection of trade secrets in an administrative agency contested case; and a discussion of the moral tribulations of agency counsel in balancing client loyalty and the privilege of confidentiality with the bar rules of “special obligation for the quality of justice.”

Attendees will also have an opportunity to explore the origins and practical realities of Texas Government Code Chapter 2260, participate in a judicial panel round-robin discussion, learn how to e-file at SOAH and in district and appellate courts, and preview major issues of interest for the 2015 legislative session.

MCLE and ethics credit are available for the event.
