The Institute for Local Government Lawyers (ILGL) is a program started by IMLA geared towards new local government attorneys, law students, as well as seasoned attorneys who need a “refresher” in various general topics of local government law. Instead of a traditional panel setting, ILGL is setup in classroom form, with a more intimate setting and greater ability to present questions to faculty. In many situations, the presenters will be expert academic professionals in their respective fields.
