for Regulatory Attorneys
MONTHLY 30-minute Mini Case Seminars
SECOND TUESDAY @ 4pm ET
Join us live online or access the recording once available (or both)!
Each mini-seminar covers the case highlights, aspects of import to the regulatory community, and proceed with a discussion of implications for regulatory attorneys. Cases will be selected from current, relevant regulatory issues to provide a breadth of coverage. To keep the content relevant and timely, we'll select cases about two weeks prior to each seminar. Each month, Dale Atkinson, JD and Amy Richardson, JD guide us through the case selected and identify key elements or factors for the regulatory community.
At the end of each session, attendees will be able to discuss:
Relevant judicial opinions
Implications for regulatory boards
Considerations for their own jurisdiction or organization
Considerations for administrative law and the intersection of employment matters, board authority, professional standards of care, or more.
Session-specific objectives, attendance checks, and evaluations may be requested by those interested in submitting to their jurisdictions for CE/CLE.
