Who Needs This Book?

ATTORNEYS: This book contains the statutes and rules that a Solicitor needs at his or her fingertips, and that should be on the bookshelf of every lawyer whose practice touches Pennsylvania municipalities. Any attorney not immediately equipped with all of the information contained in Bisel's NJ MUNICIPAL LAWSOURCE® is potentially and publicly uninformed. Counseling and appearing before local government can be minefields, and knowledge of the laws and rules in this book is the tool to defuse them.

PUBLIC OFFICIALS: This resource contains the statutes and rules that govern New Jersey municipalities. Individuals at the helm of local government best fulfill their public obligations when knowledgeable of the law. Bisel's NJ MUNICIPAL LAWSOURCE® is a must for those elected, appointed, and employed to run local government.

CITIZENS: Any citizen familiar with these laws, and who with that knowledge cooperatively participates in the affairs of the municipality, enhances the community and local government.
