Local governments interact with people in their daily lives more intimately than any other form of government. Attorneys representing local governments face unique challenges that lawyers in the private sector do not, and must stay informed on ever-changing and expanding legal problems. IMLA provides a specific, yet thorough set of tools for local government attorneys. IMLA offers a way for local government attorneys to get up to speed on local government law and also quickly anticipate and react to changes in federal and state law impacting local governments. We invite you to discover more of our services by viewing our benefits below.
