100% Renewables in a City Near You

This summer Georgetown began receiving power from a solar farm in West Texas. The solar farm, in conjunction with a wind farm in the Texas Panhandle, makes Georgetown one of the few cities in the U.S. with 100 percent renewable energy. The decision to go with renewables was predominantly a financial one, but the City has been fortunate to receive coverage from across the world regarding our energy portfolio.

That's All the News for Today. Stay Ethical, Austin!

In recent years, the news has highlighted ethics issues relating to conflicts of interest, confidentiality, the use of social media, supervision of non‑lawyers, and other topics.  This panel will use factual scenarios to discuss the requirements and lessons of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, including Rules 1.6, 1.7, 5.3, and 7.1 and to consider practical ways to identify and avoid ethical pitfalls.
