History and Mission
The Local Government Legal Center (LGLC) is a coalition of national local government organizations formed in 2023 to provide education to local governments regarding the Supreme Court and its impact on local governments and local officials and to advocate for local government positions at the Supreme Court in appropriate cases.
The LGLC’s mission is to raise awareness of the importance of Supreme Court cases to local governments and to help shape the outcome of cases of significance to local governments at the Supreme Court through persuasive and effective advocacy. In appropriate cases, the LGLC will provide a strong and unified voice to the Supreme Court regarding local government issues and help educate the Supreme Court in cases involving issues that impact local governments. The LGLC will serve as a resource to local governments and local government officials on issues related to the Supreme Court.
