The Lobby School was founded to enable its participants to improve their chances of changing their states' legal environments.
A state legislature can either enrich you or impoverish you; it can prevent or permit your actions and those of others. Which are you going to let happen? We can help you get an appropriation or legislation to advance your groupï¿½s interests or disadvantage a key competitor. You do not have to accept the status quo.
For most practical purposes, a legislature can do whatever itwants, to you or for you.
Our custom lobbying skills seminars can be built around your issues and
given at a time and place of your convenience. We have trained corporations,
associations, and ad hoc coalitions, employees and association members, with
skills that have brought them success with legislators and executive
