This coming Thursday, July 31st, 2014, I will be speaking at the Suing and Defending Governmental Entities continuing legal education (CLE) course. It is a two-day program in Austin put on by the State Bar of Texas. The course contains the usual topics of interest (qualified immunity, Texas Tort Claims Act, sovereign immunity, First Amendment claims) for an attorney who is suing or defending a government body.
This year, for the first time, animal law is being included in the program. I’m delighted that I was chosen to speak on the topic for this CLE course. My presentation will focus on matters of interest to local governments, such as dangerous dogs, dangerous wild animals, and animal shelters. If you want to attend, or need more information on the program, contact the State Bar of Texas at TexasBarCLE.com or 1-800-204-2222.
