Ruth Alderman Schlossberg has been appointed to the Local Government Law Section Council of the Illinois State Bar Association.

Schlossberg is one of 30 attorneys on the council, but the only lawyer in private practice in McHenry County, Illinois. Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle is the county’s largest law firm.

Schlossberg has practiced law for more than 20 years and has focused on local government law since 2003 for cost-conscious clients in McHenry and Lake counties. A graduate of the University of Michigan, Schlossberg also studied at the London School of Economics. She earned a juris doctor from Yale Law School.

According to the ISBA, the Local Government Law Section Council’s mission is to:

  • enhance the knowledge and professional capabilities of lawyers who devote time to the practice of the law relating to units of local government.
  • disseminate information and comment on legislative and judicial developments and their impact on units of local government.
  • make recommendations on legislation.
  • develop and communicate ideas to improve the functioning of units of local government.

With Richard G. Flood, Schlossberg co-authored the book Congratulations! You’ve Been Elected: Now What Do You Do? A Practical Guide to Local Government. The guide, published by the Illinois Municipal League, offers local public officials advice to help them “hit the ground running” and succeed in new leadership positions.
