Local Government Law Center
Unique in our region, the Local Government Law Center is one of the very few centers nationwide devoted primarily to state and local government law and the only one based in a public law school. For more than twenty years, lawyers, government officials, and policymakers have relied on the center's expertise in matters relating to state and local government. Today, the mission of the center is fourfold:
- It provides technical assistance, research services, and support to local governments, their attorneys, and their elected and appointed officials.
- It promotes the study and development of state and local government law through teaching, scholarship, and continuing education.
- It offers law students opportunities to gain practical experience in local government law through internships and externships.
- It serves as an information clearinghouse about local government through its newsletters and community outreach efforts.
