Attorneys can get two hours of free continuing legal education credit at a public access seminar next week in Greenfield, the last in a statewide series this year. The event is open to the public and will focus on Indiana’s public records and open government meeting laws.

The session will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Hancock County Public Library, 900 W. McKenzie Road. The seminar series is sponsored by the Indiana Attorney General’s Office, the Indiana Public Access Counselor’s Office and the Hoosier State Press Association.

Attendees are asked to register to ensure adequate space is available. Attorneys who register and attend can qualify for 2.0 hours of free CLE. Register by calling the AG’s Office, 317-233-6143, or online at www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/2840.htm.  

Scheduled panelists are Indiana Public Access Counselor Joe Hoage, Deputy Attorney General Anne Mullin O’Connor and Steve Key, HSPA executive director and general counsel.

Panelists will explain public access laws and requirements and provide examples of how public records requests should be initiated by citizens and addressed by officials and attorneys. Audience members will have the opportunity ask questions.

Wednesday’s session will conclude this year’s series of 10 meetings around the state, but future such events are planned, according to the AG’s office. Previous sessions this year have been held in Indianapolis, South Bend, Bloomington, Sellersburg, Auburn, Logansport, Portland, Corydon and Washington, Ind.
