Plugged In: A Lawyer’s Guide to Public Power

Join DEED for an overview of the publication Plugged In: A Lawyer’s Guide to Public Power as well as a valuable case study showcasing the diverse ways you can put an intern to work at your utility.
August 16, 2018
2:00pm EDT - 3:00pm EDT

DEED interns serve many diverse and valuable functions at electric utilities across the nation from linework and electrical engineering, to communications and legal services. One such intern at Missouri River Energy Services, a joint action agency in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, leveraged her time as a DEED intern to create a primer for attorneys entering the public power industry. The publication, Plugged In: A Lawyer’s Guide to Public Power, provides a first-of-its-kind resource to attorneys representing public power utilities. And it is available today for free on the DEED Project Database. Presenters will review the fundamental legal issues essential to representing municipal electric utilities.

The student intern who worked to develop the guide as well as utility personnel who have been using and distributing the guide will be presenting. Join DEED on Thursday, August 16 at 2:00 PM EDT for an overview of the publication Plugged In: A Lawyer’s Guide to Public Power as well as a valuable case study showcasing the diverse ways you can put an intern to work at your utility.

DEED members may review project information located on the DEED Project Database.
