ADLA receives and reviews proposed legislation that may impact (positively or negatively) the practice of law, the ADLA membership, and/or clients of the ADLA membership.  ADLA and the Legislative Committee will, from time to time, circulate new or proposed legislation to the membership to keep all members abreast of current legislative issues and developments.  Depending on the impact that proposed legislation may have on the practice of law, the ADLA membership, or clients of the ADLA membership, the Legislative Committee will involve the ADLA Board of Directors, membership, other lawyers, and/or other interested individuals and entities to work with legislators to promote or oppose certain legislation. Visit our Legislative page for timely updates. Please direct legislative inquiries to Evan Ward
