Texas Water Law for Lawyers (Posted By Gary Cutrer)
The University of Texas law school is conducting a two-day refresher on Texas water law in Austin. With the course description, I would guess this one would be geared more to lawyers and legislators than to the general public/concerned citizen. But, if you’ve got your lawyer’eze language greased up, you might want to fork out the $450 for the course and attend.
The University Of Texas School Of Law has scheduled this two-day Water Law Institute for Thursday and Friday, December 10 and 11, at the Hyatt Regency Austin, 208 Barton Springs Road in Austin.
An optional Wednesday evening session titled Texas Water Law Overview, an overview of Texas water law cases, statutes, and regulations, is included in the registration fee.
The program will run from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Thursday and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday.
Among the topics that will be explored are a Legislative Update with Mark McPherson of the McPherson LawFirm, PC; Legislative Perspective on CCNs with Rep. Bill Callegari, the Texas House of Representatives; Texas Water Marketing in Perspective with Laura Harnish and Mary Elizabeth Kelly, both of the Environmental Defense Fund; The Big Deal: Ethics of Negotiations Involving Economic Development by Ross Fischer, Denton, Navarro, Rocha & Bernal, P.C.; and an Update on Texas General Land Office’s Water-related Programs with Jerry Patterson, the Texas General Land Office in Austin.
