Join the Public Entity Law Section

The ACBA Public Entity Law Section brings together a diverse array of attorneys who have a civil practice in federal or state court and who represent cities, counties, the state, special agencies/districts and educational systems. 

In a time when the public is turning to public attorneys for protection and enforcement, this Section examines the role of local public attorneys who litigate in the public interest to vindicate broader public interests in economic, environmental, public health and civil rights.

The goal of the Section is to provide: 1) a forum to network and share best practices and 2) MCLE programs tailored to the specialized needs of public entity attorneys.  The Section will identify and analyze issues affecting public attorneys and provide MCLE programs taught by knowledgeable and experienced practitioners that cover a range of issues.
