Dear School Law Section Members:
The Section’s annual summer retreat and continuing education seminar is set for Friday, July 18, and Saturday, July 19, in Galveston, Texas, at the San Luis Resort. The planning committee co-chairs, Kevin Lungwitz and Lynn Rossi Scott, have lined up an excellent group of speakers and topics. Scheduled topics include a legislative update, employee contacts, immigration and employment, legal rights of gay students and employees, retaliation cases in the Fifth Circuit, family law issues on campus, and one hour of ethics.
For those of you who have never attended the retreat, it is a great opportunity for CLE in a relaxed setting, and families are welcome. The seminar is held only in the morning, with the afternoon left open for golf, swimming, tennis, and other leisure activities. The Section’s golf tournament will be held on Friday after- noon at the Galveston Island Municipal Course. A casual, buffet-style dinner will be held on Friday night at Landry’s Seafood Restaurant. You should receive the brochure and registration form any day now in the mail.
Finally, I would like to thank Dorcas Green and Jon McCormick for yet another outstanding issue of the newsletter. If you would like to write an article for a future issue, please contact Dorcas or Jon.
