What's new this spring? A Book Prize and more!

  • April 23, 2020

Our Section Executive knows that you and your colleagues across the country have been significantly affected, personally and professionally, by the current pandemic. As public bodies and governments at all levels respond to rapidly changing facts and immense need, public lawyers are providing essential advice and services as critical components of the pandemic response. Many of us are doing so while adapting to new and sometimes disruptive conditions, including working from home and conducting nearly all our business electronically.

We salute your perseverance and adaptability. We wish you, your families, your clients and your colleagues good health and the strength to overcome the many challenges still to come.

Please check the CBA’s COVID-19 Resource Hub for additional professional development and resources.
