MADISON —The public, media representatives, and government officials and employees still have time to register online for the free Department of Justice seminars on the public records and open meetings laws with Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and Assistant Attorneys General.


Local officials and Wisconsin residents frequently contact the State Programs, Administration and Revenue (SPAR) Unit with specific questions on the state's public records and open meetings laws. These upcoming seminars offer the chance to learn more about the laws from Assistant Attorneys General.


The three-hour, live programs will be held the afternoons of Monday, October 3rd (Pewaukee) and Monday, October 10th (Madison). A webinar also is scheduled for Thursday, October 20th.


A webinar is an interactive audio-visual presentation viewed live over the Internet from the participant's personal computer.


When registering, participants will be asked to provide their name, title, email address, organization/agency, zip code and which seminar they plan to attend.
