Do you have a civic responsibility office policy? 

Like the right to trial by jury, voting makes up the bedrock of our democracy. As a leader in the law, you can encourage your colleagues and staff to vote by adopting a civic responsibility policy for your practice. 

Don't know where to start? Take a look at this civic responsibility policy drafted by ITLA President-Elect Guy Hallam.

This policy includes language allowing employees paid time off to vote, work the polls on Election Day, and participate in jury duty. 

We hope you'll consider adopting this policy or something similar to help ensure your staff has the ability to exercise their right and freedom to vote.
