Holt, Kochanek and Neill to offer insights for land use practitioners
RALEIGH – Smith Moore LLP attorneys Clyde Holt, Colleen Kochanek and Dave Neill will participate in the North Carolina Bar Association's Continuing Legal Education seminar, "Stakes in the Ground: 2008 Hot Topics" on April 3 at the NC Bar Center in Cary. The program will feature an assembly of several leading land use practitioners to discuss topics related to the land use development business.
The program is aimed at lawyers and non-lawyers alike and will examine a multitude of topics that affect land use practitioners. Holt and Kochanek will focus on recent and pending legislative activity that could affect practitioners, while Neill will lead a discussion on the unauthorized practice of law by non-lawyer professionals. The program will also feature information about the roles of local government boards in land use decisions and the local government's authority to use exactions, impact fees and adequate public facilities ordinances, in addition to a review of valuable legislative and case law updates.
The event will be hosted by the NC Bar Association Zoning, Planning and Land Use Section. All section members who register by March 27 will receive the early-bird rate of $195.
