The hotline attorney is expected to attend the annual MPA convention, as well as MPA’s annual Day at the Capitol and June retreat, and to make themselves accessible to association members and to the board of directors. Additionally, the attorney may be asked to attend regional meetings to present on related subjects or to testify before the state legislature in Jefferson City.

Contract duties are paid via an annual retainer fee, distributed monthly, with separate reimbursement for necessary travel and related expenses.

MPA’s hotline attorney could also be asked to provide additional legal services to the association and its members which do not fall within the parameters of the hotline program, including review of proposed legislation, drafting of proposals and filing of legal briefs in cases of interest to the association. Additional legal work outside the scope of the contract has generally been paid at an agreed upon rate with the association as a client of the firm. And the attorney is free to contract with association members to do work outside of the hotline agreement, such as special projects or representation of the individual member if they are involved in litigation, but the association would suggest that the firm include in the agreement with the association a discounted rate that will be offered to members for such work, as an additional benefit to the members.

Requirements/Qualifications

• Licensed to practice law in the State of Missouri, awaiting bar results, or transferring bar license from a different state;

• Experience or training in media law and defending Constitutional rights of media organizations;

• Familiarity with news operations or past work as a journalist is beneficial but not required.
