What better way to get all your local (major party) candidates together to hear about where they stand on justice issues than to host an all-candidates debate at your local courthouse? You may even want to open it up to the public! And don't forget to inform the local press.
Every candidate needs legal help. Serving as a general legal advisor on a local campaign to deal with advertising, social media, lawn sign placement, and other campaign-related issues is one way to serve. Campaigns also look to have lawyers on hand for election day (vote counting and ballot shenanigans).
But they should also have a policy advisor on justice issues.
