Legislative Reference Bureau (LRB) Career Chat

Friday, March 05, 2021, 01:00pm - 02:00pm
Location:  Zoom

Join us for a chat with alums working at the Legislative Reference Bureau.

The LRB conducts legal and public policy research for legislators, their staffs, and legislative committees. Research and information services are nonpartisan and confidential at all times. The LRB oversees several research projects that present original content and data analysis about Wisconsin government. These include the Wisconsin Policy Project, Reading the Constitution, the Wisconsin History Project, the Wisconsin Elections Project, and LRB Reports. The LRB Library maintains an extensive collection of materials relating to the Wisconsin Legislature and provides access to Wisconsin state government publications and reports. The LRB is the authoritative source for research material on the history of the Wisconsin Legislature. The LRB maintains drafting files for all introduced legislation since 1927. The LRB conducts legislative histories for legislators and their staffs and responds to judicial and public inquiries about legislative history. The LRB serves as a liaison to national legislative clearinghouse organizations such as the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Council of State Governments, and the Uniform Law Commission. LRB analysts assist legislators in finding legislation from other states, developing policy ideas, and in researching legislative proposals for introduction in Wisconsin.

The LRB has been an agency of interest to many LFS students, and they will be hiring in May. They look forward to getting to know you and helping you learn more about the agency and their opportunities. Learn more about the LRB here:

This session is intended for graduate students, but undergraduates planning on attending La Follette or another policy graduate program are also welcome.
