Regardless of what side of an issue you may be on, there is no doubt a heightened sense of civic engagement and political discourse in the air and an increase in public gatherings of various types concerning statements and actions by public officials.  As you and your clients enter these new times, come learn about the basic rights of those who are traveling or attending public gatherings, including guidance drawn from aspects of immigration law; First Amendment and Article I, section 8 law; and search and seizure and other criminal law. 

 The format of this presentation will be in the form of hypothetical scenarios to which a panel of experts will respond and issue spot. If you would like to submit a scenario or question for consideration, please email it along with your RSVP.

This event is free but space is limited. Please RSVP to:LReeves@bullardlaw.com.
