2018 UT System Legal Conference

2018 UTS Legal Conference
Body

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The 2018 UT System Legal Conference will be held September 20-21, 2018, at The University of Texas System Building. The conference was 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 will include several breakout sessions to provide attendees more options that relate to their fields.

A conference highlight will be the keynote address from Judge Don Willett of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Sessions will also cover First Amendment issues on campus, telemedicine, fraud in federal research, disaster law, animals on campus, indemnity in public contracts, damages for public institutions of higher education in Texas, the ethics of multiple institutional clients, the #MeToo movement and Title IX, leadership, and the GDPR and higher education. Check out the 2018 Legal Conference Agenda for the full list of speakers and topics. A link to the 2018 conference materials will be posted in the coming weeks.

Finally, in addition to the substantive legal topics covered, the conference will provide attorneys across the System a unique opportunity to strengthen relationships with colleagues.
