Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law: What Public Officials and Their Lawyers Must Know about This Statute
Marvin Comisky Conference Center, One Logan Square, Philadelphia, PA
October 23, 2008
9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Blank Rome will host a timely and informative seminar, “Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law: What Public Officials and Their Lawyers Must Know about This Statute” on October 23, 2008 at 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
On January 1, 2009, Pennsylvania’s new Right-to-Know Law becomes effective, and life for Pennsylvania’s state and local government agencies will never quite be the same. The new Right-to-Know Law turns upside down the presumption that has existed for the past 50 years, that only certain public records are required to be disclosed. After January 1, all public records, except those specifically exempt from the law’s provisions, must be disclosed.
Will your government agency be prepared on January 1 to take the quick action that will be required to avoid significant financial costs and penalties for noncompliance?
This seminar will be chaired by Blank Rome partner Larry Beaser, former general counsel to
- What disclosure is required by the new law and what does not need to be disclosed?
- What must you do administratively before January 1 to cope with the law’s requirements?
- What strategies should you adopt to minimize risks and avoid Right-to-Know Law pitfalls?
2.5 Pennsylvania CLE credits will be available. Seating is limited, so reservations are essential.
