Municipal Law as a Career

Why Become a Local Government Lawyer?

IMLA is excited to provide resources to our members to help recruit law students and lawyers to the field of local government law.  Working as a local government lawyer offers fantastic opportunities for both new lawyers and those looking to switch career paths, but we find that many law students and even lawyers are unfamiliar with the benefits of municipal law as a career. IMLA has created the above video to help fill that knowledge gap and provide first hand accounts from IMLA members on why municipal law is such a rewarding career path. Please feel free to share this video and use it as a resource to help in your recruitment efforts. We also have resources on scholarships and open job posting below.
