Minds Shared


The Atkinson Firm is pleased to announce our educational offerings for 2022. Our Regulatory Academy Workshops and Modules will focus on foundational knowledge for regulatory community members. The Case Conversations will provide a specific emphasis for the administrative law attorney.


Leadership & Law

The Atkinson Firm is excited to bring you 13 modules specific for regulators. We hosted these monthly 1-hour sessions live in 2022. Content is focused on Leadership & Law topics. The Regulatory Academy Modules are designed for those interested in a deeper understanding of the regulatory world and offer engaged conversation around developing competence in regulatory roles and leadership perspectives related to board membership, board administration, and navigating the regulatory community. Board members will learn about administrative law perspectives and further understand the 'regulatory hat'. Session-specific objectives and attendance checks are available, and evaluations are offered for those interested in submitting to their jurisdictions for CE/CLE.

Case Conversations


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.
