Open government group offers course on sunshine laws

The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government (NMFOG) will host a legal training program on the state’s public records and open meetings laws Friday at the Journal Center.

The daylong course, in its sixth year, will be led by volunteer lawyers and include tips and legal insights on navigating the state’s sunshine laws.

“This program is tailored to be useful to anyone who deals with public records or open meetings, whether it be journalists, citizens, lawyers or public employees,” said Greg Williams, president of FOG’s board of directors. “We try to give as much hands-on, practical information as we can so that people attending can use it right away.”

Topics include recent court decisions, copying fees, ethical challenges, transparency measures debated during the 2017 Legislative session and how technology’s potential to improve public access to the Legislature.

Attorneys who attend are eligible to earn six continuing legal education credits.

Registration, available online at www.nmfog.org, is $200 for NMFOG members and $250 for nonmembers.
