Model City Ordinance Review

The Alabama League of Municipalities, in conjunction with The Alabama Law Institute, provides a service through which law students at The University of Alabama review, upon request, at a nominal cost to the municipality, the ordinances of a city or town and offer suggestions as to needed changes or additions. A committee of veteran municipal attorneys was appointed to develop a set of model ordinances to help guide the law students selected to provide this service.

Law students are selected by the Alabama Law Institute for this program and trained by the League staff.

This service is offered to any municipality with a population of less than 4,000 inhabitants. The cost of the service is $450.00 for three days work plus mileage and lodging, if necessary. If more than three days are needed in a municipality, the students are available at a rate of $15.00 per hour.

If your city or town is interested in this service, contact Ken Smith or Perry Roquemore at the League. They will put you in contact with officials at the Alabama Law Institute so arrangements can be made for this service.
