Municipal Attorney Training Program
The Diplomate in New Jersey Local Government Law program is a cooperative endeavor between the Center for Government Services (CGS) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey and the New Jersey Institute of Local Government Attorneys (NJILGA). The program is designed to provide valuable information on local government law for experienced local government attorneys as well as those who have been recently appointed or who seek local government appointments. The courses cover a broad area of municipal practice and are taught by attorneys or licensed professionals in their respective disciplines.
Students can choose to take one or several of the above listed courses. Those seeking to obtain Rutgers University’s Diplomate certificate must successfully complete all six courses in the program and apply to the University for the Diplomate certificate. Diplomates must accrue continuing education credits and renew their certificates with Rutgers per the program guidelines. The Diplomate application and certificate renewal information will be available on the Rutgers CGS website in the fall of 2022.
All courses will be held online during the Spring 2022 semester. Registered students will receive log-in information via email approximately 2-3 business days before the course. Please ensure that you provide an accurate email address when registering to receive course log-in information.
Links to register are available at the top of the website or online at https://cgs.rutgers.edu/registration-information.
