for Regulatory Attorneys

Join The Atkinson Firm for these 30-minute mini case seminars each month. We'll cover 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. 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.
