The League advocates for municipalities through the efforts of its legal team.
Our Legal Department participates in a variety of amicus interventions because they have significant legal precedents affecting municipalities statewide.
The League’s General Counsel, William J. Kearns Jr., assists the League in monitoring cases that will have an impact on municipalities and conducts a number of training sessions during the year.
In addition, each month our Associate General Counsel, Frank Marshall, writes a "Q&A" article published in the League’s NJ Municipalities magazine. The Q&A provides a look into some of the more common questions received by our legal department.
Attorneys and local elected officials alike must continually adapt to this ever-changing legal landscape and our legal department is a strong resource to help them in this task.
