The one-day event, scheduled for March 6 at the Bar Association of San Francisco Conference Center in San Francisco, will provide an in-depth exploration of elections issues facing municipal lawyers in 2020, including issues regarding tax initiatives, voting rights litigation, redistricting after the census, and election security.
The purposes of the annual symposium are to:
- Integrate the study of municipal law in law schools with the practice of municipal law in order to encourage and train students to work in municipal law as a profession.
- Promote, through research and scholarly exchange, an analysis of municipal law issues.
- Support the legislative and legal advocacy programs of the City Attorneys Department by acting as a resource to the state legislature and judiciary in the development of municipal law.
The symposium will also include a keynote address by Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Jesse H. Choper, Distinguished Professor of Law at Berkeley Law. The symposium is co-sponsored this year by Berkeley Law and the Bar Association of San Francisco, in addition to the League’s City Attorneys Department.
