Educational Opportunities

Academy of Municipal Attorneys (AMA)

Legal SessionParticipation in the AMA involves both an educational component and a practice component to achieve the purposes of the program.  The educational component seeks to train and educate the applicant in not only the basic elements of municipal law, but also to encourage academic and scholarly excellence in municipal law.  The practice component seeks to recognize the implementation of the academic component by applying the academic program to effective and competent legal practice.  In addition, membership in the AMA seeks to encourage opportunities for dialogue, friendship, and fellowship with social opportunities to promote the Academy.
