The First Annual ArkTIGG FOIA Symposium, Thursday, September 30, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Silver City V Room of the North Little Rock Riverfront Wyndham Hotel.
Attorneys throughout Arkansas will have the opportunity to obtain one hour of CLE credit by their attendance during a 60-minute presentation by Robert Steinbuch, professor of law at the Bowen School of Law in Little Rock. Titled “FOIA Today”, Robert’s presentation will appeal to attorneys desiring to obtain a better understanding of the State’s FOIA, its use, ramifications and benefits. Robert is known throughout the State for his knowledge and passion concerning FOIA issues, and has co-authored the treatise titled “The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act” which continues to serve as the “bible” for those desiring to learn more about the FOIA statute. Several copies of the well-written and documented book will be available during the Symposium for sale by Group officials. Copies of the “The Arkansas Freedom of Information Handbook”, edited and printed by the Attorney General’s staff and others will be distributed free to each Symposium attendee. The Handbook is a valuable resource for any Arkansas citizen interested in open records, open meetings and open government.
