2017 Legal Conference

Body

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The 2017 UT System Legal Conference has been developed to offer informative and practical sessions on a wide range of topics relevant to attorneys at UT System academic and healthcare institutions. Our speakers will share their expertise and insights on high-profile legal issues as well as on matters that higher education attorneys face on a day-to-day basis. Given the variety of our attorneys’ practice areas, the program includes several breakout sessions to provide attendees more options that relate to their fields.

A conference highlight will be the keynote address from Texas State Senator Royce West, with an introduction by Chancellor Bill McRaven. Sessions also will cover immigration, transgender issues, biomedical ethics, healthcare contracting, the role of the Attorney General’s Office in litigation, employment law, internal investigations, cloud computing contracts and privacy, leadership, compliance, public information, and a legislative update. Check out the agenda for the full list of speakers and topics.

Finally, in addition to the substantive legal topics covered, the conference provides attorneys across the System a unique opportunity to strengthen relationships with colleagues. We hope you will join us in Austin at the new UT System Administration Building for this year’s conference!
