Special (and Free) Lunch Session at ABA AdLaw Conference on Friday, 5/7: Fireside Chat with Former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff

On Friday the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice will be holding our annual Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice Institute as well as our annual Homeland Security Law Institute. It’s not to late to register for these virtual, combined conferences (details here).

As part of this dual-conference event, we will be hosting a virtual “luncheon” from 12:30-1:30pm eastern, which will include the presentation of the Mary C. Lawton Award for Outstanding Government Service to Judge Melissa McIntosh, followed by a fireside chat on national security issues with Judge Michael Chertoff and Joe Whitley. And we have decided to move the luncheon event outside of the conference paywall.

To access this free program, you will need to register separately here. After registering you will be provided with a Zoom link. Note that this is a non-CLE event. Here are the details on the fireside chat:
