The listserv is an email-based discussion forum that facilitates communication among Michigan municipal attorneys. The e-group is designed to improve communication among members, offer a forum for exchanging ideas, and allow municipal attorneys to benefit from the experience, knowledge, and wisdom of their peers. To maximize its value to Michigan’s municipal attorneys, participation is restricted to members of MAMA.
The Municipal Legal Briefs is a newsletter published by the League in partnership with the MAMA. It is published quarterly as a benefit to MAMA members. The Briefs contain articles of interest to municipal attorneys as well as summaries of cases affecting Michigan municipal law and local units of government. The core summaries are provided by Kester So, a partner in the Lansing office of Dickinson Wright. Non-members may purchase subscriptions to the Legal Briefs.
The League’s Legal Defense Fund
The MML Legal Defense Fund (LDF) is an advocacy program for Michigan's local governments in the courtrooms. MAMA assists the Defense Fund, as the MAMA board of directors serves as members of the LDF board, along with the League president and executive director/CEO. It provides support and assistance to municipalities, and their attorneys, in court cases where the issues have a broad impact on both the municipality involved in the case, and on other municipalities in the state. League General Counsel William Mathewson is the LDF administrator.
